Aging-related mutations in blood cells represent major new risk factor for cardiovascular disease – Medical Xpress

By daniellenierenberg

June 22, 2017 Credit : Susanna M. Hamilton, Broad Communications Scientists at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have found that a set of genetic mutations in blood cells that arises during aging may be a major new risk factor for cardiovascular disease. In contrast to inherited genetic predispositions and traditional lifestyle risk factors, such as smoking or an unhealthy diet, the new mutations are “somatic mutations” that originate in stem cells in the bone marrow as people age

An LAPD officer needs a bone marrow transplant. His ethnicity limits his chances of getting one – Los Angeles Times

By LizaAVILA

Matthew Medinas doctors diagnosed him with a rare blood disease a few months ago and told him he would probably die without a bone marrow transplant. With that prognosis came another: The 40-year-old Los Angeles police officer had a less than 50% chance of finding a donor because he is not white. Most successful matches for bone marrow transplants involve a donor and patient of the same ethnicity.
