As part of this conversation, Gabrielle Fredman, PhD describes what is meant by the failure of resolution, and the mechanisms that can drive this failure in atherosclerosis. Dr. Fredman ends by outlining the potential for specialized pro-resolving mediator (SPM) therapies in the management of vascular disease. Gabrielle Fredman, PhD is Associate Professor at Albany Medical College, Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology. From the 16th International Conference on Bioactive Lipids in Cancer, Inflammation and Related Diseases, October 2019 in St…

Studies show that 50-70% of men have their first heart attack before they have any chest pain.  There are two issues with the traditional treatment of LDL cholesterol. First, many people experience adverse effects with statin therapy, requiring alternative approaches via diet and supplements to get their LDL cholesterol levels under control. The second issue is LDL cholesterol evaluation. We need to be looking at LDL particle number and size as well as whether or not it’s been modified. LDL…

Cardiometabolic

HDL cholesterol plays vital roles in lipid biology and coronary heart disease pathophysiology. The main function of HDL is to scavenge for and carry LDL cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, for redistribution, metabolism, and excretion. A high HDL measurement was previously thought to represent high reverse cholesterol transport, conferring heart-protective benefits for patients. But newer research indicates a more complicated HDL picture—where five different HDL forms and unique functionalities are at play. In this MAPS…

In recent years we have witnessed a groundswell of interest in the ketogenic diet. This concept of consuming certain types of high-fat foods (while reducing carbohydrates) to induce a physiological state called ketosis is a form of therapeutic nutrition that has been studied for decades in a variety of conditions. Cancer researchers have become very interested in the potential benefits a ketogenic approach might bring to oncology patients taking certain types of anti-cancer drugs. Why? Because initial experiments conducted in…

In this video animation, you will learn about the role of phytocannabinoids in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a biological system that plays diverse roles in regulating various aspects of health. ECS actions on the central and peripheral nervous systems are numerous, such as helping to moderate stress responses and pain sensations, supporting mood and memory, and performing immunomodulatory functions like reducing inflammation, to name a few. The ECS was discovered in the 1990s by researchers studying bioactive…

Most of us don't really listen to our bodies. We exist solely from our heads and ignore the rest, but this way of living is not healthy in the long term. Women's health used to focus on what makes our bodies unique, but we are only now discovering what makes our brains fundamentally different from men's brains. Women’s brains and bodies experience imbalance, weight gain, stress, exhaustion, forgetfulness, addiction, depression, and anxiety in unique and extraordinary ways. What works for…
