3-D Kidneys

Milestone Reached in Project to Build Replacement Kidneys

Regenerative medicine researchers at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine have addressed a major challenge in the quest to build replacement kidneys in the lab. Working with human-sized pig kidneys, the scientists developed the most successful method to date to keep blood vessels in the new organs open and flowing with blood. If proven successful, the new method could potentially be applied to other complex organs that scientists are working to engineer, including the liver and pancreas.

Hispanic Americans need culturally tailored heart care

A first-time comprehensive overview of cardiovascular disease in Hispanics in the U.S. outlines the burden of heart disease and stroke as well as emphasizes the importance of culturally appropriate healthcare for this population. The American Heart Association scientific statement is published in the Association’s journal Circulation.“This segment of the population has been somewhat ignored,” said Carlos Rodriguez, M.D., M.P.H., lead statement author and chair of the writing group and an associate professor of medicine and epidemiology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. “Given the large Hispanic population in the U.S., it would be very hard to improve the health of the nation if this population is left behind.”

Soy Protein More Effective than Animal Protein in Preventing Heart Disease in Animal Model

Scientists have known for years that women are protected from cardiovascular disease before menopause, but their risk increases significantly after menopause. Although estrogen is thought to be the protective factor, post-menopausal hormone replacement therapy remains controversial due to the side effects. In an effort to find a safer and more effective therapeutic option, scientists conducted an animal study to determine whether a high soy protein diet reduced the risk of coronary artery atherosclerosis, hardening and narrowing of the arteries, after menopause. The study is published in the current online edition of the journal Menopause.

Lower Isn't Necessarily Better for People with High Blood Pressure

In a study published in the June 16 online edition of JAMA Internal Medicine, a research team led by Carlos J. Rodriguez, M.D., associate professor of public health sciences, found that lowering systolic blood pressure below 120 does not appear to provide additional benefit for patients. Systolic pressure is the top number in a standard blood pressure reading (e.g., 120/80).
