Conquering the lysosomal storage disorders with genetic engineering
(Medical Xpress)—The motivation by fear, anger, and love to preserve self, kin, and others perches near the pinnacle of our existence. Triumph in the face of a seemingly insurmountable medical adversity by the creation of some tangibly successful treatment, virtually out of thin air, invariably strings together countless moments of courage and heroism to cut a continuous path of sheer human elegance through time that is a privilege to behold. The movie 'Lorenzo's Oil', and the book 'My Brother's Keeper', are two such popular accounts of families who brought the fight and won the fight against rare neurodegenerative disorders; a third is the now unfolding story of a family fighting against a debilitating lysosomal storage diseases known as Sanfilippo Syndrome, or MPSIIIa (mucopolysaccharidosis IIIa).

Mechanism identified through which lead may harm neural cells, children's neurodevelopment
Researchers have identified a potential molecular mechanism through which lead, a pervasive environmental toxin, may harm neural stem cells and neurodevelopment in children. The study, from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, suggests that lead exposure can lead to oxidative stress—a process that can change cell behavior and has been linked with health problems—among certain proteins within neural stem cells.

Up to 80 percent of heart failure patients denied therapy to reduce hospitalization and early death
A study in nearly 15,000 heart failure patients has found that up to 80 percent may not be receiving treatment at doses proven to reduce hospitalizations and improve survival. The research highlights the need for doctors to ensure patients are treated appropriately so that the high levels of serious illnesses and death associated with heart failure can be reduced.
