• Getting Enough Sleep May Help Skin Wounds Heal Faster:  Getting more sleep may help wound healing, and a nutrition supplement may also help, according to a new study. The paper, published ahead of print in the Journal of Applied Physiology, was chosen as an APSselect article for November.
  • Red Blood Cell Function, Renewal the Focus of Sickle Cell Conference Symposium:  Researchers will meet to discuss the physiology, function and future of red blood cells (RBCs) in sickle cell disease (SCD) at the “Red Cell Physiology” symposium during the APS Physiological and Pathophysiological Consequences of Sickle Cell Disease conference in Washington, D.C.
  • Out of Balance: Gut Bacterial Makeup May Exacerbate Pain in Sickle Cell Disease:  An overabundance of the bacteria Veillonella in the digestive tract may increase pain in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD). Researchers from Howard University will present their findings at the APS Physiological and Pathophysiological Consequences of Sickle Cell Disease conference in Washington, D.C.
  • Genotype May Identify Complication Likelihood in Sickle Cell Patients:  Researchers have found a genotype that could help identify sickle cell disease (SCD) patients at greatest risk of common, yet severe, complications of SCD. The findings will be presented at the APS Physiological and Pathophysiological Consequences of Sickle Cell Disease conference in Washington, D.C.
  • Stress, Fear of Pain May Be Cause of Painful Sickle Cell Episodes:  Mental stress and the anticipation of pain may cause blood vessels to narrow and trigger episodes of severe pain (vaso-occlusive crisis, or VOC) in sickle cell disease (SCD). A team of researchers from California will present their findings at the APS Physiological and Pathophysiological Consequences of Sickle Cell Disease conference in Washington, D.C.
