Researchers making progress on understanding why people lose their hair as they age
(Medical Xpress)—Two groups of researchers working on two different projects have made inroads into understanding the cause of alopecia—the gradual loss of hair during aging. One team, with members from Japan, the U.S. and the Netherlands, found that accumulated DNA damage was at least partly to blame—the other team, working at the University of Colorado, discovered a certain protein that appears to be responsible for causing follicle stem cells to enter their dormant cycle. Both teams have published papers in the journal Science, describing their studies and results. Mingxing Lei and Cheng-Ming Chuong with the University of Southern California offer a Perspectives piece on the work done by the two teams in the same journal issue, and more fully explain the on/off growing cycle of scalp hair in mammals.

Pioneering discovery leads to potential preventive treatment for sudden cardiac death
(University of Vermont) Roughly 15 years ago, a team of Vermont researchers discovered the precise malfunction of a specific protein in the heart that leads to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a common culprit in cases of sudden death in young athletes. A team of Harvard scientists and colleagues used some of these findings to develop a possible treatment to prevent this inherited disease that can cause the heart to thicken and stop pumping blood effectively, leading to heart failure.
