Study shows that a kidney transplant can reverse heart failure

...iew, Dr. Mehra said, "This is an amazing study. It reverses the usual sequence of scientific inquiry from laboratory bench to patient bedside. Instead, astute observation at the bedside is prompting investigators to the laboratory, where they can systematically seek to understand why kidney transplantation su...

Functional electrical stimulation reverses muscle degeneration This study investigates muscle recovery induced by a new system of life-long functional electrical stimulation training in permanent denervated human muscle. Needle biopsies of long-term denervated muscles showed severe dystroph...

Viagra blunts effects of stress on the human heart

...the group also showed that sildenafil prevents and reverses the long-term effects in the heart from chronic high blood pressure. Moreover, Kass adds, the latest Hopkins results confirm that sildenafil helps control heart function only when the heart is under duress, but has little impact under normal condit...

Caloric restriction appears to prevent primary aging in the heart

...hat eating a very low-calorie, nutrient dense diet reverses declines in diastolic function. People in the study averaged only six years on the diet, but their hearts looked 15 years younger. So Fontana says it's possible that the diet has a rejuvenating effect. He notes that most study subjects had parents, ...

Agent protects Parkinson's neurons from rotenone toxicity
