Eruca sativa Mill. is an edible plant belonging to the Brassicaceae botanical family with a long story as a medicinal material, mainly linked to the presence of glucoerucin. One of the main products of this glucosinolate is erucin, a biologicallly active isothiocyanate recently recognized as a hydrogen sulfide (H S) donor. Read More

Regular physical activity and exercise training are integral for the secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Despite recent advances in more holistic care pathways for people with atrial fibrillation (AF), exercise rehabilitation is not provided as part of routine care. The most recent European Society of Cardiology report for AF management states that patients should be encouraged to undertake moderate-intensity exercise and remain physically active to prevent AF incidence or recurrence.

Rationale: Long-term exercise provides reliable cardioprotection via mechanisms still incompletely understood. Although traditionally considered a thermogenic tissue, brown adipose tissue (BAT) communicates with remote organs (eg, the heart) through its endocrine function. BAT expands in response to exercise, but its involvement in exercise cardioprotection remains undefined. Read More

New Findings: What is the central question of this study? What are the cardioprotective effects of different aerobic exercises on chronic heart failure with different aetiologies, and is mitophagy involved? What is the main finding and its importance? Moderate-intensity continuous training may be the 'optimum' modality for improving cardiac structure and function in ischaemic heart failure, while both moderate-intensity continuous training and high-intensity interval training were suitable for pressure-overload heart failure. Various mitophagy pathways, especially parkin-dependent pathways, participated in the protective effects of exercise on heart failure.Abstract: The cardioprotective effects of different aerobic exercises on chronic heart failure with different aetiologies and whether mitophagy is involved remain elusive.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an 'umbrella' term, comprising a spectrum ranging from benign, liver steatosis to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, liver fibrosis and eventually cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. NAFLD has evolved as a major health problem in recent years. Discovering ways to prevent or delay the progression of NAFLD has become a global focus. Read More
