Exercising Human Muscles Independently Staves Off Chronic Inflammation

Scientists at Duke University show that exercising has a protective effect that helps muscle cells block the damaging effects of chronic inflammation mediated by cytokines such as interferon gamma. The study was made possible by the development of a first-of-its-kind research platform where human muscle bundles were engineered and electrically stimulated to mimic exercise.

Harmful and Healing Responses to Brain Injury Diverge by Cellular Mediators...

Immune responses spread out over time have the ability to contain, exacerbate, and ultimately repair a cerebrovascular injury, a new study reports. Therapeutic blocking of the infiltration of specific immune cells into the brain using antibodies that neutralize cell adhesion molecules, can prevent fatal edema after brain injury, if administered within a six-hour window, the authors note.
