It's old blood, not old bones, that makes fracture healing difficult among the elderly

It's old blood, not old bones, that makes fracture healing difficult among the elderly | Atabrine James Simmons; Enigma of Mankind. | Scoop.it

A recent finding by scientists from the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, and Duke University challenges long-held ideas about why our bones have a harder time healing as we age. Their research discovered that old mouse bones mend like youthful bones do when they're exposed to young blood after a fracture.


“The traditional concept is that as you get older, your bone cells kind of wear out so they can't heal as well, and we thought we'd find that during this study as well,” explains study co-author Benjamin Alman, of the Hospital for Sick Children. “But it turns out that it's not the bone cells, it's the blood cells. As you get older, the blood cells change the way they behave when you have an injury, and as a result the cells that heal bone aren't able to work as efficiently.”


The researchers paired lab mice, one old and one young, and subjected them to bone fractures, but that wasn't all they had in common. The living animals' circulatory systems were also joined together by a 150-year-old surgical technique known as parabiosis. Scientists removed a layer of skin from each mouse and stitched the exposed surfaces together. As the animals healed their capillaries joined, enabling their two hearts to pump the same blood throughout the two bodies as a single system. Parabiosis, which has been gaining new popularity in aging research, allowed Alman and colleagues to see what impacts the circulating factors of the younger mouse's blood had when introduced into the body of an older mouse.


The experiment, published this week in Nature Communications, suggests that young blood cells secrete some as-yet-unknown molecule, likely a protein or possibly some other chemical, that speeds up the healing of fractured bone. The molecule apparently does so by regulating levels of beta-catenin in bone cells known as osteoblasts. Keeping beta-catenin at the proper levels appears crucial for the formation of new high-density bone.


This ability is greatly diminished in older animals' blood because it no longer secretes the molecule, whose exact chemical nature remains a mystery at this point. “My guess is that there are a number of proteins involved that are made differently as we get older, and that they are responsible for the difficulty in healing bone,” Alman says.


The findings could prove good news for aging humans, but healing our bones won’t require the type of transfusions used in the experiment—nor will it borrow the synthesized “True Blood” variety that may soon enter clinical trials. Sharing human blood in this manner raises a number of red flags ranging from practicality to possible medical complications.

Do Marketers Need to Become Data Scientists?

Do Marketers Need to Become Data Scientists? | Atabrine James Simmons; Enigma of Mankind. | Scoop.it
As social media becomes a bigger part of marketing strategies, marketers are looking for ways to validate the investment. This means using the data from social campaigns to drive and optimize campaign performance. However, the challenge is figuring out which bits of data are the most important and how to leverage that data to impact the bottom line.

So it follows that one of the biggest trends of 2015 is a rise in social analytics that provides actionable insights. From Wayin’s real-time social search engine, Intelligence from Spredfast, and the new consumer data product from Offerpop, social media management and analytics platforms are providing new tools to help marketers put social data into context.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 5, 12:40 PM

While the Wall Street Journal is declaring this news, it is nothing new to the Census Bureau and those that look at the data rather than listen to the news media.  Some in the media would have you imagine that there is a flood of Mexican migrants entering the United States when the recent history shows that narrative simply doesn't line up with data.  Would you have guessed that both India and China were sending more migrants to the U.S. than Mexico?  This is one of those examples where our preconceived notions interfere with actually 'getting it right.'  This is why Hans Rosling started the Ignorance Project.  So on this Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to put some Mexico-U.S. statistics in the the right light.   

       

Tags: Mexico, migration.

Blake Joseph's curator insight, May 6, 8:26 PM

This statistic actually makes a lot of sense. Immigrants from Mexico, while still a high number, has been gradually dropping sense 2001 when Homeland Security and Border Patrol were beefed up after 9/11 . The exceptions are the increasing numbers during 2004 when many immigrants from Mexico were originally from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, and 2011 when many Mexicans were trying to escape the cartel violence. India and China, on the other hand, are geographically much further away than Mexico and still have more immigrants into the US. This is likely largely in part due to India and China being two of the most populated countries in the world and America's restrictions on their immigration here not being near as strict or monitored as it is with Mexico.

Many hoping to stop environmental degradation of Canada's Tar Sands and the Dakotas "Kuwait on the Prairie" have opposed the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.  It's been decades since crude oil has been shipped by rail in the United States but fracking technologies have opened up areas without oil pipelines to become major producers.  As demonstrated in this NPR podcast, the railroad industry has seized on this vacuum and since 2009 has been supplying the oil industry the means to get their product to the market.  Trains, however, are not the safest way to transport oil, even if they are efficient in the short run.
