ND brain researcher receives NFL grant

first_imgThe National Football League (NFL) will fund Notre Dame’s chemistry and biochemistry departments to research strokes and other brain injuries, professor Mayland Chang said. Chang, who has been working on the project for 15 years, studies gelatinase-based brain diseases. Funded in part by the National Institute of Health, the researched treatments are getting close to FDA trials, she said. Gelatinase is a type of enzyme that breaks down cell walls and can cause tumor metastasis in cancer, as well as problems in traumatic brain injury (TBI), strokes, aneurysms and diabetic wounds. Chang’s husband, professor Shahriar Mobashery, discovered a compound at Wayne State University called SB-3CT that could be a possible treatment for the brain diseases. Mobashery now teaches at Notre Dame. The SB-3CT compound is an inhibitor triggered by the enzyme’s reaction in the cell. Chang said a compound like SB-3CT could help stop brain damage similarly to how it helps stroke patients. The compound was synthesized more than 450 times to find a way to make it water soluble, so it can be put into an IV or given to a patient in the form of an injection, Chang said. If all goes well, the drug could be in use with stroke patients in seven to nine years, Chang said. “Would this be great to have as an injectable treatment?” she said. “It could be on the sidelines. If you get a concussion, you can get a shot. This is eventually our hope.” The current drug used to dissolve clots in ischemic, or clot-forming, stroke patients is tissue Plasminogen Activator, or tPA, Chang said. This drug dissolves the clot, but increases gelatinase enzymes, which causes hemorrhaging and brain swelling. When SB-3CT is given in tandem with this drug in experiments, it has reduced side affects. Researchers have developed an experimental model to test compounds. “We’re always looking for better ways to treat,” she said. Chang, whose son is a competitive snow boarder, witnessed the treatment for TBI when her son had a concussion last year. “If you have a concussion, they can do cognitive treatment,” she said. “They do simple things. For example, they ask you to list words that begin with the same letter. They also make you take a rest — no physical activity, nothing to rattle your brain. They don’t really do anything else.” The research team is currently searching for funding to have toxicology studies done, which will then put the drug into FDA clinical trials, Chang said. She said the team hopes the compound will improve emergency response to brain problems. “Given in an ambulance setting, it would work quickly,” she said.last_img read more

Buttigieg stops in Mason City

first_imgMASON CITY — Former South Bend Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg made four stops throughout Iowa on Wednesday, including last night in Mason City, one day after the final Democratic presidential candidate debate before the Iowa Caucuses.Buttigieg says the next president needs to be able to rally Americans to get things done. “We’re going to need a president determined to rise to meet those big issues and one with a plan on how to do that in a way that will actually have America more united and not divided from before. That tall order, that big job, that is what I believe the presidency is for. I’m asking for your support, and I’m running for this office, because I believe the presidency has a purpose. The purpose of the presidency is not to glorify the president, it is to empower and unify the American people to get those big things done, that’s why I’m running.”Buttigieg says the next president has to unify and not divide Americans.  “My sense of patriotism, my love of country begins with the understanding that our country consists of people. You can’t love a country if you hate half of the people in it. We have to do better than that. We have to make sure that we lift one another up, protect one another, and if we’re serious about protecting each other, that starts right here at home.”Buttigieg says those currently serving in the military deserve a better Commander in Chief. “Those troops deserve a president who carefully reads all of the intelligence that is submitted on important decisions, who consults with Congress on major issues of life and death, war and peace, who is in touch with our allies on whose cooperation or safety often depends, and who think through the consequences and the moves and the counter-moves that could follow from any decision that’s made in the situation room. Does anybody think that’s what this president is doing when it comes time to make those decisions?”Buttigieg says people are being underpaid and it’s hurting the economy. “The bottom line is that most people are struggling right now to hold on to what they’ve got, let alone to get ahead, which is supposed to be that American dream. In order to do something about that, we’ve got to face the fact that not only are there very complicated, very sophisticated things happening in the economy, there’s some really simple problems, extremely simple problems like this one. People are not getting paid enough. To me that’s the number one problem in the economy, and that’s what we’ve got to fix, and we can do it by supporting workers as well as making things more affordable on the other end.”Besides stops yesterday in Newton, Tama, and Cedar Falls, Buttigieg will be at the Wilcox Performing Arts Center in Algona this morning at 10:30 before traveling later today to Emmetsburg, Arnolds Park, Orange City and Sioux City.last_img read more
