Cellular senescence is traditionally defined as permanent cell growth arrest and currently includes the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP). There are two main types of cellular senescence, including telomere-dependent replicative senescence and stress-induced premature senescence. The process of cellul...

In this study, we tested whether catalpol has the potential to improve insulin sensitivity by augmenting myogenesis.Main methodsWe examined the hypoglycaemic mechanism of catalpol in db/db mice and C2C12 cells. db/db mice were treated with catalpol (200 mg/kg) for 8 consecutive weeks. Serum analysis, skeletal muscle performance and histology, and gene and protein expression were performed. In vitro glucose uptake, gene and protein expression were determined, and small interfering RNA was used to identify the underlying hypoglycaemic mechanism of catalpol.Key findingsIn this study, we tested whether catalpol has the poten...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of drugs and the factors associated with polypharmacy in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) in Minas Gerais. Descriptive analysis of drugs in use and logistic regression to estimate the association between socio-demographic and clinical characteristics with polypharmacy were performed. Of the 2619 respondents, 56.5% were in polypharmacy. Drugs for DM, agent in renin-angiotensin system, and diuretics are the most frequently used. Factors such as age, comorbidities and increased access to health services were associated with polypharmacy. It was observed high prevalence o...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: American Journal of Kidney DiseasesAuthor(s): Maria L. Gonzalez Suarez, Andrea Kattah, Joseph P. Grande, Vesna GarovicAs the incidence of chronic kidney disease increases and women pursue pregnancy at more advanced ages, the management of kidney disease in pregnancy has become increasingly relevant to the practicing nephrologist. Women with kidney disorders face several challenges in pregnancy due to increased physiologic demands on the kidney and risk for disease progression, the potential teratogenicity of medications, and the increased risk for complications such ...

Authors: Sagbo IJ, van de Venter M, Koekemoer T, Bradley G Abstract In South Africa, the number of people suffering from diabetes is believed to be rising steadily and the current antidiabetic therapies are frequently reported to have adverse side effects. Ethnomedicinal plant use has shown promise for the development of cheaper, cost-effective antidiabetic agents with fewer side effects. The aim of this study was to investigate the antidiabetic activity and mechanism of action of aqueous leaf extract prepared from Brachylaena elliptica. The potential of the extract for cytotoxicity was evaluated using MTT assay in...

Authors: Rampogu S, Parameswaran S, Lemuel MR, Lee KW Abstract Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is used as a spice throughout the world. It is known for its medicinal properties such as antidiabetic, anticarcinogenic, and immunological activities. The present study shows the properties and the nutritional quality of fenugreek seed extract and focuses on screening of active compounds in drug designing for type 2 diabetes and breast cancer. Quantitative analysis was used to calculate the percentages of protein, carbohydrates moisture, fatty acid, galactomannan, oil, and amino acid. Phytochemical analysis reveale...
