Longer sprint intervals can improve muscle oxygen utilization compared to shorter intervals      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Sprint interval training (SIT) is a form of exercise characterized by cycles of intense exercise which are interspersed by short durations of rest. In a recent study, researchers deep dive into the intricate connections among various parameters of SIT, such as duration and repetitions, and the resulting physiological responses. Their findings can aid in developing well-informed and tailored sprint training regimens that significantly benefit the modern-day population.

Far from toxic, lactate rivals glucose as body's major fuel after a carbohydrate meal      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Scientists have documented the benefits of lactate burning in exercising humans, but few studies have looked at the role of lactate during rest or after a meal. Exercise physiologists challenged fasting men and women with a carbohydrate meal and then monitored lactate in the blood and fat vs carbohydrate metabolism. They found that lactate buffers glucose from a meal, and that lactate is utilized for energy almost as much as glucose.

Melanoma in darker skin tones      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer that accounts for 75% of all skin-cancer-related deaths, is often detected later in people with darker skin complexions -- and the consequences can be devastating, a new study reveals.

New treatment could reverse hair loss caused by an autoimmune skin disease      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Researchers developed a potential new treatment for alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss. The microneedle patch delivers immune-regulating molecules that can teach T cells not to attack hair follicles, helping hair regrow.

Who should receive preventive treatment for TB? Individuals of all ages with positive skin or blood test      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Researcher found that exposed individuals with confirmed TB infection -- i.e. a positive skin or blood test -- should receive priority treatment in settings with a low prevalence of the disease, regardless of their age. However, in high-burden settings, all exposed individuals should be considered for preventative treatment, even without a confirmed infection. This strategy can help end the tuberculosis epidemic and support global public health efforts to reduce TB mortality by 95 percent by 2035 (from 2015 estimates).

A tailored vaccine could one day treat eczema in children      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

New research suggests a 'tailored vaccine' might hold the key to treating bacteria-driven flares of eczema in children. The team has taken several leaps forward in understanding how the immune response works in cases of eczema driven by the common, troublesome Staphylococcus aureus bacterium, and in doing so they have identified new cellular targets for a vaccine.

Scientists work out the effects of exercise at the cellular level      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

The health benefits of exercise are well known but new research shows that the body's response to exercise is more complex and far-reaching than previously thought. In a study on rats, a team of scientists has found that physical activity causes many cellular and molecular changes in all 19 of the organs they studied in the animals.

It takes two to TANGO: New strategy to tackle fibrosis and scarring      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

A study has now successfully controlled the effects of collagen hypersecretion at the cellular level. The experimental treatment consists of designer peptides which interrupt the interaction between TANGO1 and cTAGE5, two proteins important for collagen secretion. Experiments with patient-derived human cells and zebrafish showed the peptides are effective, non-toxic, and their effects reversible. The results pave the way for the development of new treatments that improve the cosmetic effects of scarring, relieve the symptoms of autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma, or help prevent the development of fibrosis, a more serious condition attributed to 45% of deaths in the industrialized world.

Mosaics of predisposition cause skin disease      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Clarifying the cause of a skin disease led to the discovery of a new disease-causing gene, a new category of diseases, and new perspectives for both counseling and therapy. The discovery is the first time that epigenetic silencing, the 'switching off' of an otherwise intact gene, has been recognized as the cause for a skin disease.
