Emerging evidence indicates that postmenopausal women with periodontitis have aggravated inflammation and prolonged course, with the detailed mechanisms largely unknown. This study aimed to determine the pathogenic role of aberrant extracellular vesicles due to imbalanced-polarized macrophages and explore the therapeutic approach for periodontitis in postmenopausal individuals. Periodontitis in ovariectomized (OVX) mouse models were established to simulate the aggravated periodontitis in postmenopausal women.

Background: The effect of long-term exposure to air pollution on the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is still controversial, and the role of the interactions of air pollution with genetic risk and lifestyle in COPD risk is unclear. Methods: We included 452762 participants derived from the UK Biobank. Annual concentrations of air pollutions, including particle matter (PM2.5, PM10), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), were assessed using land-use regression model.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a leading neurodegenerative pathology associated with aging worldwide. It is estimated that AD prevalence will increase from 5.8 million people today to 13.8 million by 2050 in the United States alone. AD effects in the brain are well known; however, there is still a lack of knowledge about the cellular mechanisms behind the origin of AD. It is known that AD induces cellular stress affecting the energy metabolism in brain cells.
