It continues to happen: I run into people who say to me “I follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle. I eat gluten-free!” When I ask them what that means, they tell me that they only eat gluten-free bread, pasta, pizza, cookies, etc. I’m not entirely sure why this misinterpretation of the Wheat Belly message is so common. Let’s talk about this important distinction, as being gluten-free can be an absolute health and weight disaster, unlike the magnificent health and weight loss we enjoy on the Wheat Belly lifestyle when done right. It’s perfectly fine to be gluten-free, i.e., avoiding wheat, rye, and b...

Publication date: Available online 30 November 2018Source: Biocatalysis and Agricultural BiotechnologyAuthor(s): Muhammad Khalid, Saeed-ur-Rahman, Muhammad Bilal, Hafiz M.N. Iqbal, Danfeng HuangAbstractCarotenoids are a group of versatile isoprenoid pigments, and bioactive constituents found predominantly in fruits and vegetables. Carotenoids play an essential role in the prevention of human diseases and thus facilitate to maintain a good health. They are effective health-promoting compounds, which are significant contributors to our diet and have been proposed to reduce the incidence of chronic diseases such as cardiovasc...

Authors: Chang KC, Petrash JM Abstract Aldose reductase (AR) is an NADPH-dependent aldo-keto reductase that has been shown to be involved in the pathogenesis of several blinding diseases such as uveitis, diabetic retinopathy (DR) and cataract. However, possible mechanisms linking the action of AR to these diseases are not well understood. As DR and cataract are among the leading causes of blindness in the world, there is an urgent need to explore therapeutic strategies to prevent or delay their onset. Studies with AR inhibitors and gene-targeted mice have demonstrated that the action of AR is also linked to cancer ...

This study suggests that exocrine glands can be induced from pluripotent stem cells for organ replacement regenerative therapy. Replacement of Aged Microglia Partially Reverses Cognitive Decline in Mice https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2018/10/replacement-of-aged-microglia-partially-reverses-cognitive-decline-in-mice/ Researchers here report on a compelling demonstration that shows the degree to which dysfunctional microglia contribute to age-related neurodegeneration. The scientists use a pharmacological approach to greatly deplete the microglial population and then allow it to recover naturally. The...

CONCLUSION: Considering the many roles of the Sam domain into a significant variety of diseases, more efforts and novel drug discovery campaigns need to be engaged to find out small molecules and/or peptides targeting Sam domains. Such compounds may represent the pillars on which to build novel therapeutic strategies to cure different pathologies. PMID: 30306850 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ERK1/2-mediated EGFR-signaling is required for TGFβ-induced lens epithelial-mesenchymal transition. Exp Eye Res. 2018 Oct 02;: Authors: Shu DY, Wojciechowski M, Lovicu FJ Abstract Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of lens epithelial cells (LECs) plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of fibrotic cataract. Transforming growth factor-beta (TGFβ) is a potent inducer of this fibrotic process in lens. Recent studies in cancer progression have shown that in addition to activating the canonical Smad signaling pathway, TGFβ can also transactivate the epidermal growth factor receptor (E...
