BACKGROUND: Painful, treatment-resistant wounds are prevalent among diabetic patients and significantly affect health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Topical treatments may help alleviate pain without risk of dependence or side effects. However, there is a lack of topical wound compounds targeting pain-specific receptors. One possible target is proinflammatory angiotensin 1 receptor (AT1R), which is upregulated in diabetic skin and has been implicated in nociception. OBJECTIVES: We investigated the effects of topical valsartan, an AT1R antagonist, on pain (nociceptive thresholds) and gene expression changes (transcriptomics) in a swine model of diabetic wounds...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of hypertension is 55% among African American/Black women, who have a higher risk for poor health outcomes compared to women from other racial and ethnic groups, in part because of uncontrolled blood pressure. Previous research results suggest that peers may positively influence self-management of chronic conditions like hypertension. However, few studies have described the personal characteristics of peers in the health social networks of Black women. OBJECTIVE: This substudy aimed to examine health social networks and describe the peers' characteristics, as reported by a convenience sample of Black women with hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Controlling high blood pressure (BP) continues to be a major concern because the associated complications can lead to an increased risk of heart, brain, and kidney disease. Those with hypertension, despite lifestyle and diet modifications and pharmacotherapy, defined as resistant hypertension, are at increased risk for further risk for morbidity and mortality. Understanding inflammation in this population may provide novel avenues for treatment. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to examine a broad range of cytokines in adults with cardiovascular disease and identify specific cytokines associated with resistant hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Substantial effort has been invested to combat childhood obesity, but overall effects are disappointing, especially in low-income racial minority children. One possible reason is a lack of focus on the important stress-eating connection. Stress can negatively influence eating behaviors, leading to an increased appetite for high-fat and energy-dense foods. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the preliminary effects of a healthy eating and stress management program targeting multiple theoretical variables on improving eating behavior (dyads' fruit/vegetable intake, emotional eating), food insecurity, anthropometric characteristics (dyads' BMI, % body fat), cardiovascular health (dyads' blood pressure), and mental well-being (parental stress)...
