Wake Forest Baptist receives $7M grant for lung injury clinical trialsOwen Covington
Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center will receive a $7 million, seven-year grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute as part of a broader network of research centers that is looking at the prevention and early treatment of acute lung injury.
Researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine have discovered a previously unknown cardiac molecule that could provide a key to treating, and preventing, heart failure. The work was partially funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
A review of data from thousands of Americans in the long-term NHLBI-supported Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study (ARIC) suggests that a history of high blood pressure in midlife increases the risk of cognitive decline in old age, according to a report on the study led by Johns Hopkins researchers. The findings, the scientists say, indicate a treatable cause — hypertension — for at least some pervasive forms of cognitive deficit.
