Newswise: Can the state of Alabama conquer its biggest health challenges? It's a Grand Challenge, and one state university is determined to prevail

Can the state of Alabama conquer its biggest health challenges? It's a Grand Challenge, and one state university is determined to prevail

University of Alabama at Birmingham

For far too long, Alabama’s residents have seen their health statuses languish when compared to those of other states. Often, Alabama is a punchline when it comes to obesity, diabetes and the overall health of its people. But the consequences, unfortunately, are counted in decreased quality of life, increased health costs and lives lost — hardly a laughing matter.

Newswise: Model probes possible treatments for neonatal infection, a common cause of infant death

Model probes possible treatments for neonatal infection, a common cause of infant death

University of Alabama at Birmingham

In a new model for neonatal late-onset sepsis, or LOS, researchers show that disrupting the normal maturation of gut microbes can make newborn mouse pups highly susceptible to LOS. Giving the pups specific protective bacteria before a challenge with invasive bacteria prevented the deadly infection.

Newswise: Germ-free lungs of newborn mice are partially protected against hyperoxia

Germ-free lungs of newborn mice are partially protected against hyperoxia

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A novel newborn mouse model probes the effect of high oxygen concentration, or hyperoxia, on lung development of pups that are germ-free — with no microbes in their lungs. The model will show how different types of microbes that colonize human lungs at birth protect or make an infant more susceptible to life-threatening bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

Newswise: Probing the role of an inflammation resolution sensor in obesity and heart failure

Probing the role of an inflammation resolution sensor in obesity and heart failure

University of Alabama at Birmingham

After heart attack, ALX/FPR2 is activated by resolvin D1 in immune cells in the spleen and at the heart attack site. This speeds resolution of the heart injury. Research with mice that completely lack ALX/FPR2 reveals more about the pathways this resolution sensor uses to target inflammation.

Research points to possible target to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or IPF

University of Alabama at Birmingham

In a study of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or IPF, recruited macrophages with increased mevalonate-pathway flux were able induce lung fibrosis in mice without any prior lung injury. In humans, three hallmarks of the fibrosis mechanism were also found in bronchoalveolar cells from IPF patients.
