    Abstract Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a fatal lung disorder that happens when the alveoli of infants stop developing normally. Using mechanical ventilation on infants can cause BPD. The microvessels around the alveoli are also developed in BPD. This study aims to identify different factors important to angiogenesis in infants who have been put on mechanical ventilation. This research team found high levels of Endoglin in the microvessels and low levels of vascular endothelial growth facto...

    AbstractThe composition of wheat protein may trigger celiac disease. This study compares 60 types of wheat grown over 3 years for things like height, yield, protein, gliadin, glutenin, albumin/globulin ratio, and gluten. When looking at proteins, this study found that the year of harvest, not the type of plant, had a larger effect. This study did not find evidence supporting modern wheat varieties triggering celiac disease more than other types of wheat.AimsThis study aims to identify if differe...

    Abstract Patients with cardiovascular disease and inflammation have high levels of soluble endoglin in their blood. Mice expressing human soluble endoglin (sEng+) were put under different inflammatory conditions. sEng+ mice has reduced lung and kidney injury after inflammation. There were also lower levels of neutrophils in inflamed lungs and kidneys. The sEng+ mice also had less proinflammatory cytokines, like TNF-alpha, IL1-beta, and IL6 compared to the wildtype mice. Cell adhesion molecules l...

    Abstract Racial disparities in pain management have been previously documented. Further understanding of the causes of these disparities is needed to make healthcare provision equitable. In this study, the researchers wanted to understand racial differences in how analgesia is administered in children with appendicitis. Analgesia are drugs that relieve pain. They paid special attention to the administration of opioids. This study was a repeated, observational study of patients less than 21 years...

    Abstract This paper analyzes the effect New Jersey’s decline in horse racing has on the state’s veterinarians. More specifically, the study looks on several veterinarian practices’ revenue and staff size over the last five years. The data gathered suggests that only veterinarians involved in racehorse breeding (vs those in horse racing) were negatively impacted by the industry’s decline.  Introduction New Jersey’s share in the $122 billion dollar equine industry was estimated at $1.1 billion in ...

    Abstract Canada and the United States are both similar in that they are liberal welfare states, but have significant differences in poverty resulting from social policies. A more generous welfare system can uplift people from poverty, but more income from the state may also displace private savings and merely substitute people’s income rather than increase it (substitution effect). In this study, the researchers used nationally representative surveys of wealth in Canada and the U.S from the late...

    Abstract Microplastics (MP) have become a global threat recently. Their toxicity is largely unknown. This study looks at the toxic effects of 0.5 μm, 4 μm, and 10 μm polystyrene microplastic (PS-MPs) on the male reproductive system of adult mice. 4 and 10 μm MP accumulated in the testis of the mice, while all three sizes were able to enter into three different kinds of testicular cells. The testosterone levels and sperm quality both declined after exposure for 28 days. Cellular abnormalities wer...
