Inhibition of the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway by rapamycin (RAPA), an FDA-approved immunosuppressive drug used as a clinical therapy to prevent solid organ allograft rejection, enhances longevity in mice. Importantly, RAPA was efficacious even when initiated in relatively old animals, suggesting that mTOR inhibition could potentially slow the progression of aging-associated pathologies in older humans (Harrison et al., 2009; Miller et al., 2011). However, the safety and tolerability of RAPA in older human subjects have not yet been demonstrated...

Due to recent advances in micro total analysis system technologies, microfluidics provides increased opportunities to manipulate, stimulate, and diagnose blood cells. Controlling the concentration of cells at a given position across the width of a channel is an important aspect in the design of microfluidic devices. Despite its biomedical importance, the collective spreading of red blood cells (RBCs) in a microchannel has not yet been fully clarified. In this study, we experimentally investigated the collective spreading of RBCs in a straight microchannel, and found that RBCs initially distributed in one side of the microchannel spread to the spanwise direction during downstream flow...

OBJECTIVE: Neonatal sepsis is a major cause of mortality in the developing countries. However, with current severity scores and laboratory parameters, predicting outcomes of neonatal sepsis is a serious challenge. Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a readily available pragmatic means to predict outcomes of various comorbidities in adults and children, without causing any additional blood loss. However, its utility in neonates remains unexplored. Hence, the objective of the present study was to evaluate the association of RDW with neonatal sepsis and its role as a predictive marker for mortality...

Despite the limited clinical relevance of thrombocytopenia after bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement (AVR), the postoperative depletion of platelet count continues to attract the attention of many authors. The development of thrombocytopenia has been evaluated either in patients receiving a sutureless bioprosthesis (1,2) or in those undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation, where cardiopulmonary bypass bears little or no relation to this phenomenon (3). Recently, Sánchez et al. (1) have published their findings on this topic, but their limited experience with the devices used makes their study of doubtful interest...
