To encourage meaningful and productive multidisciplinary collaborations, there must be at least one laboratory scientist and at least one clinician participating in the research. A clinician is defined as an individual who is credentialed (possesses the necessary degrees, licenses, and other certifications) and practicing as a care provider in a relevant capacity. In addition, at least one member of the research team must have significant experience in either orthopaedic or musculoskeletal research or medicine. Biographical sketches should include appropriate documentation of credentials. It is the responsibility of th...

Authors: Dutra JDM, Lisboa QC, Ferolla SM, Carvalho CMML, Mendes CCM, Ferrari TCA, Couto CA Abstract Some epidemiological evidence suggests an inverse correlation between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) frequency and vitamin D levels. Likewise, a beneficial effect of vitamin D on diabetes mellitus (DM) and insulin resistance has been observed, but this is an unsolved issue. Thus, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of hypovitaminosis D in a NAFLD Brazilian population and its association with disease severity and presence of comorbidities. In a cross-sectional study, the clinical, biochemical and histo...

Abstract Abnormal birth weight is the one of the major causes of adulthood diseases such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension. Accumulating evidence has suggested that the placental trophoblast is one of the most important reasons that influence birth weight. Our previous study showed that miR-519a are correlated with low fetal birth weight through regulating trophoblast proliferation. To further clarify the detailed mechanisms on how it is regulated, we screened the placental-specific circular RNAs (circRNAs) via microarray assay. The result identified that cir...

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a metabolic disease characterized by increased inflammation, NOD-like receptors (NLRs) activation and gut dysbiosis. Our research group has recently reported that intestinal Th17 response limits gut dysbiosis and LPS translocation to visceral adipose tissue (VAT), protecting against metabolic syndrome. However, whether NOD2 receptor contributes intestinal Th17 immunity, modulates dysbiosis-driven metabolic tissue inflammation, and obesity-induced T2D remain poorly understood. In this context, we observed that mice lacking NOD2 fed a high-fat diet (HFD) display severe obesity, exhibit greater adipos...
