Authors: Kutlu O, Kaleli HN, Ozer E Abstract The proportion of obese or diabetic population has been anticipated to increase in the upcoming decades, which rises the prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and its progression to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Recent evidence indicates that NASH is the main cause of chronic liver diseases and it is an important risk factor for development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Although the literature addressing NASH-HCC is growing rapidly, limited data is available about the etiology of NASH-related HCC. Experimental studies on the molecular mechani...

Animal models have been developed to study the complex cellular and biochemical processes of wound repair and to evaluate the efficacy and safety of potential therapeutic agents. Several factors can influence wound healing. These include aging, infection, medications, nutrition, obesity, diabetes, venous insufficiency, and peripheral arterial disease. Lack of optimal preclinical models that are capable of properly recapitulating human wounds remains a significant translational challenge. Animal models should strive for reproducibility, quantitative interpretation, clinical relevance, and successful translation into clinical use.

Publication date: Available online 19 September 2018Source: Acta Pharmaceutica Sinica BAuthor(s): Jingxin Liu, Yitao Wang, Ligen LinAbstractObesity is increasing in an alarming rate worldwide, which causes higher risks of some diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. Current therapeutic approaches, either pancreatic lipase inhibitors or appetite suppressors, are generally of limited effectiveness. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) and beige cells dissipate fatty acids as heat to maintain body temperature, termed non-shivering thermogenesis; the activity and mass of BAT and beige cells are negatively...

Investors have agreed to buy $5 million worth of GI Dynamics’ (ASX:GID) common stock, representing 6.9 million shares. The Lexington, Mass.-based company said it will use the money to fund the continued development of its EndoBarrier device and for general working capital. EndoBarrier is a plastic gut sleeve designed to treat type 2 diabetes and obesity by preventing the absorption of nutrients from food as it exits the stomach and enters the intestinal tract. In August, the FDA granted EndoBarrier an investigational device exemption (IDE)  to begin enrollment in a pivotal trial, pending Institutional ...

Here we used a massively parallel single-cell RNA-seq technology (Drop-Seq) to analyze the transcriptome of 26,677 pancreatic islets cells from both healthy and type II diabetic (T2D) donors. We have analyzed cell type-specific gene signatures, and de...

Conclusion: A high prevalence of cardiovascular and metabolic disease and a high cardiovascular risk were evidenced in patients with NFPMA, especially in men. Risk factors such as the personal history of hypertension and dyslipidemia could explain the foregoing, so the control and treatment of metabolic parameters and cardiovascular risk should be an integral part of the follow-up of these patients.
