Authors: Tian S, Yan Y, Qi X, Li X, Li Z Abstract BACKGROUND Rheumatoid arthritis model (CIA) rats were treated by tail vein injection of IL-10-modified bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) to investigate its feasibility and intrinsic molecular mechanism. MATERIAL AND METHODS The CIA rat model was established by induction type II collagen, and IL-10-modified BMSCs was established by transfecting BMSCs with adenovirus. IL-10-modified BMSCs were used to treat the CIA rats. The therapeutic effect was evaluated by measuring the changes in body weight, ankle swelling, and forced swimming time, as well as observati...

Abstract Pancreatic β-cells undergo profound hyperplasia during pregnancy to maintain maternal euglycemia. Failure to reprogram β-cells into a more replicative state has been found to underlie susceptibility to gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). We recently identified a requirement for prolactin receptor (PRLR) signaling in the metabolic adaptations to pregnancy, where β-cell-specific PRLR knockout (βPRLRKO) mice exhibit a metabolic phenotype consistent with GDM. However, the underlying transcriptional program that is responsible for the PRLR-dependent metabolic adaptations during gestation r...

Greensboro's Cone Health and a prenatal app developer are expanding the partnership the two entities forged in 2017. Washington, D.C.-based Babyscripts and Cone Health hope to develop new digital models to improve access to care for at-risk populations of expectant mothers. The partnership has in the past focused on mothers with a history of diabetes or who have developed gestational diabetes, as well as detec ting and caring for pregnancy-induced hypertension, also known as preeclampsia via Babyscripts'…

CooperAbstractPancreatic islet-derived peptide hormones play key roles in the maintenance of systemic energy homeostasis and glucose balance, and defects in their regulation are strongly implicated in the pathogenesis of obesity and diabetes. Peptides have also been used as lead compounds for therapeutics targeting metabolic disease. It is therefore important to understand the activity and function of islet hormones in both their target tissues and t...

(CNN) — Alzheimer’s disease. Diabetes. Arthritis. Unwanted hair growth. Baldness. Infertility. Erectile dysfunction. Hangovers. Glaucoma. Cancer. If you have an ailment, there’s a good chance that someone, somewhere, is studying whether turmeric can treat it. There are more than 15,000 manuscripts published about curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, and about 50 manuscripts added to this collection each week, according to the National Institutes of Health. “It’s really taken on sort of panacea-like properties in terms of the things it’s being studied for and the things it has bee...
