New method lets researchers study heart cell communication

...Heart muscle cells can become uncoupled when their oxygen supply is cut off, as happens during a heart attack. Other researchers have used voltage-sensitive dyes to study the flow of electrical signals through heart tissue. "The problem with some of those dyes is they're pretty toxic," Muller-B...

Researchers gain insights on pulmonary fibrosis

...g scar tissue limits the lung's ability to take in oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide. There are many forms of the disease, with the familial form estimated to make up 5 percent to 10 percent of all pulmonary fibrosis cases. "This is the only ongoing program in the U.S. that is systematically studying...

Antioxidant herbal extract may help prevent and treat reflux oesophagitis

...p given the higher dose. The authors conclude that oxygen free radical damage is a major cause of reflux oesophagitis, and that antioxidants should be considered alongside acid suppressants as primary treatment.

Risk of lung damage from ultrasound greater than once thought

....The air-blood barrier the membrane through which oxygen diffuses in the lung is very thin, and may be the principal target for ultrasound-induced lung damage. The cause of the damage appears to be mechanical in nature, OBrien said. A sound wave has momentum and imparts a force. A beam of sound focused ...
