The simple sight and smell of a meal prior to consumption triggers insulin release. This insulin release depends on a short-term inflammatory response. In those who are overweight, this inflammatory response is so excessive it can impair insulin secretion.
Study identifies a group of proteins in the cerebrospinal fluid that could serve as biomarkers for inflammation in the brain.
Polyphenols can reduce inflammation in older people by altering the intestinal microbiota and inducing the production of indole 3-propionic acid.
People suffering from rheumatoid arthritis are 1.2 times more likely to develop depression. Additionally, the risk of developing dementia increased by 2-3% every 5 years following a diagnosis of RA.
Treatment with Humanin G reduced protein levels of inflammation markers that become elevated in age-related macular degeneration.
Electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve promotes healing in those with acute inflammation by shifting the balance between inflammatory and anti-inflammatory molecules.
Study reveals how acute stress influences the brain's control over immune response, impacting recovery from COVID-19 and influenza.
Older adults who consumed cranberries frequently as part of their diet saw improvements in episodic memory, neural function, and brain perfusion. Cranberry consumption was also linked to a significant decrease in LDL cholesterol. Findings reveal adding cranberries to the diet helps to improve memory and could protect against dementia.
Researchers have identified elevated levels of a biomarker in the blood that persists for months in long COVID patients who experience neuropsychiatric symptoms.
A new mouse study identifies a targeted delivery method system that boosts the number of specialized anti-inflammatory immune cells within the brain to areas restricted by brain inflammation and damage. The system helped to protect against apoptosis associated with brain injury, stroke, and multiple sclerosis.
