Temple Researchers Uncover Mechanism
Behind Calorie Restriction & Lengthened Lifespan


(Philadelphia, PA) – Almost a century ago, scientists discovered that cutting calorie intake could dramatically extend lifespan in certain animal species. Despite numerous studies since, however, researchers have been unable to explain precisely why. Now, investigators at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University have broken past that barrier. In new work published online September 14 in Nature Communications, they are the first to show that the speed at which the epigenome changes with age is associated with lifespan across species and that calorie restriction slows this process of change, potentially explaining its effects on longevity.

$11.6 Million NIH Grant Supports Temple
Researchers’ Exploration of New Cell-Free
Stem Cell-Based Possibilities in Heart Repair


(Philadelphia, PA) – The incidence of heart disease is on the rise, and new therapeutic strategies are needed. Approaches based on stem cells, which can potentially preserve or even regenerate heart muscle cells damaged by ischemia – a hallmark of heart disease – are especially promising. Now, thanks to an $11.6-Million Program Project Grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, scientists at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University are poised to explore new possibilities in stem cell-based treatments for heart repair and regeneration.

Temple Researchers Help Uncover Mechanism
Behind Heart Failure and Mortality in Sepsis


(Philadelphia, PA) – Of the nearly one million people in the United States who are affected by sepsis each year, almost one-fifth die. Cardiovascular complications account for approximately 80 percent of those deaths. The heart muscle, weakened by systemic inflammation, is unable to generate the energy it needs to contract, resulting in a severe decline in blood flow and oxygen delivery to tissues that ultimately leads to organ failure. Now, in new work, scientists at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM), in collaboration with colleagues at Columbia University in New York, describe the mechanism underlying the loss of energy from heart dysfunction in sepsis, opening the way for the development of a new therapy that could save thousands of lives annually.

Temple University Hospital Offering Innovative Approach
to Treat Patients with Complex Temporal Bone Defects


(Philadelphia, PA) – Temple University Hospital is offering an innovative approach to treat patients with complex temporal bone defects, including conditions known as tegmen dehiscence and temporal encephalocele (TE). The temporal bones are a pair of bones that form part of the side of the skull. They perform several key structural functions, including enclosing the middle and inner ear and supporting the temple. In addition, nerves and blood vessels leading to the brain traverse the bones.
