Lipid turnover rates and aging insight may help with regenerative medicine

A better understanding of lipids cellular metabolism may have clinical applications with regenerative medicine in the future. A recent article published in the journal Nature Medicine investigates an interesting question. Why do many older people struggle to keep from gaining excess weight? This longitudinal study took place over a 13-year period and they studied the fat cells of 54 men and 41 women who had gastric bypass type surgery. They found that over time the rate of lipid turnover in these individuals slowed up. This decreasing rate of processing fat appeared to be an independent variable on a cellular level. It also suggested that one way to increase lipid metabolism is regular exercise.

Regenerative Medicine and Human Neural Networks

Regenerative medicine has reached another milestone. Scientist from the University of California San Diego have demonstrated neural network activity which mimics early human brain activity. Using pluripotent stem cells the researchers were able to place them in an environment which promoted the development of brain tissue. The development progressed far enough to actually begin demonstrating neural network activity. These were observed using EEG technology. While these group of neural cells are only about the size of a pea, this is a huge development in using regenerative medicine to create human brain tissue.

Exercise and well being

The physical health benefits of exercise are widely understood and agreed upon. The benefits of exercise for a healthy mind is also commonly understood. A new research study from the journal Global Advances in Health and Medicine from this year have demonstrated this healthy benefit for the mind through scientific research. Practitioners at inpatient psychiatric facilities acquired baseline reporting for their patients feelings. They measured levels of anger,  anxiety, depression, self-esteem and overall moods. They had roughly 100 patients exercise routinely in a gym for 30 minutes a day and then re-evaluated there in patients experiences. They found a significant reduction in negative feelings and an increase in their feelings of well-being. Overall patients were very pleased with structural exercises and the doctors saw a decrease in the amount of time they needed to be in the hospital and hopefully a reduction in the medications that were needed. Checking with the physician before beginning an exercise program is an important part. Exercise is good for the body and the mind. Self esteem and feeling good about yourself are both very important.
