Delaying Decay? Impairment of an Endothelial NAD+-H2S Signaling Network Is a Reversible Cause of Vascular Aging @DavidASincair

Important work from Das and coworkers from David Sinclair’s and Leonard Guarente’s world-class team. Perhaps a final common pathway exists to delaying sarcopenia, frailty and decline? via Impairment of an Endothelial NAD+-H2S Signaling Network Is a Reversible Cause of Vascular Aging – ScienceDirect

“Schrödinger’s Bacterium” Could Be a Quantum Biology Milestone – Scientific American

Wow. A great read. The quantum world is a weird one. In theory and to some extent in practice its tenets demand that a particle can appear to be in two places at once—a paradoxical phenomenon known as superposition—and that two particles can become “entangled,” sharing information across arbitrarily large distances through some still-unknown mechanism. […]

From #ToeandFlow to #ToeFlowandGo: Adding Functional and Rehabilitation to the Mix

In August, 2017 in SALSA clinic, Dr. Stephanie Woelfel, DPT, suggested that the team we have long nicknamed “Toe and Flow” (highlighting the central nature of podiatric and vascular surgery to the interdisciplinary team) was inadequate to describe what we actually did. In fact,  “Toe Flow and Go” might better describe what it was we […]

Mining Big Data Shows Podiatry’s Massive Effect on University Health Systems and Limb Preservation @UMich #ToeandFlow #ActAgainstAmputation

This great work from our SALSAmigos at University of Michigan. In short: implementation of Podiatry in a University Health System cut amputation rates in half, doubled preventative surgical procedures and shifted care from inpatient to outpatient. AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Diabetes foot complications remain very prevalent in US and worldwide, and a major risk for devastating amputations. We […]
