ConclusionIn conclusion, hypothalamic Pomc as well as Mc4r, both of which are reduced in type 1 diabetic mice, are required for normal counterregulatory responses to hypoglycemia. Therefore, enhancing MC4R function may improve hypoglycemia counterregulation in diabetes.Graphical abstract

In conclusion, C. chrysanthus flowers can be suggested as a source of bioactive components with potential use against chronic disorders caused by oxidative stress. Future in-depth studies are recommended to determine the biological effects of isolated compounds from C. chrysanthus to identify the main compounds modulating the observed activities.

In this study, a PEG-modified liposome was developed for efficiently encapsulating CBZ, thus enhancing its specific tumor inhibition effect and reducing the systemic toxicity. It was found that the loading efficiency of CBZ into the liposome could be improved with the increase of lipophilic materials, as it could be over 80% under the weight ratio of 20:1 (total lipid: CBZ). The diameter of CBZ loaded liposome (CBZ@Lipo) was ∼100 nm. And the liposome suspending in aqueous medium was stable at 4 °C for at least one month, according to the change of its size distribution. The killing ability of CBZ@Lipo to cancer cel...

This study was aimed at investigating the inhibitory potential of A. senegalensis leaf extracts and fractions on the activities of some enzymes (α-amylase and α-glucosidase) linked to diabetes. Plant samples were extracted with n-hexane (HEX), ethyl cetate (EtOAc) and ethanol (EtOH) and the extracts were subjected to in vitro antidiabetic studies. The most active extract was further fractionated using column chromatography and the fractions obtained were screened for the inhibitory activities whilst the possible bioactive compounds were determined by Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS). From the result...

Pyne, Shailendra Anoopkumar-Dukie, Lei LiuAbstractBlack salve, used as an alternative skin cancer therapy, contains both herbal and chemical constituents, including extracts of the rhizomes of Sanguinaria canadensis and zinc chloride. Black salves may be ordered online and have been associated with cases of extensive tissue necrosis and treatment failures that have resulted in patient fatalities. Despite these adverse outcomes and continued use by patients, black salve products have not be...

Conclusions: Our study suggests that the evaluation of lymph nodes via groin dissections in groin sarcomas in the Asian population should be based primarily on clinical and radiologic evidence. Regional lymph node dissection seems to confer OS benefit in patients with these high-risk tumors and can improve local control of disease.

Conclusions: These results affirm that patients with OMCC have extended OS periods and that stereotactic body radiotherapy offers strong local control in these settings. We show that even in the oligometastatic setting those with right-sided primary tumors have worse outcomes relative to those with left-sided or rectal primary tumors. This suggests more aggressive treatment may be needed for those with oligometastatic right-sided colorectal cancer.
