Verily Forms ‘Ultimate Alliance’ with Pharma Heavy Hitters

What is Alphabet’s Verily up to now, is probably a question that is asked and answered on a regular basis. Google’s farmer life science’s arm has worked with some pretty big players in healthcare on projects ranging from surgical robotics to smart contact lenses. On Tuesday, Verily revealed yet another long-term project – one that would have it work with some of the top players in the pharmaceutical industry, in an effort to improve clinical research. The company said it had formed strategic alliances with Novartis, Otsuka, Pfizer, and Sanofi to implement a more patient-centric, technology-enabled approach to research, and increase the number and diversity of clinical research participants. “Verily has spent the last several years developing tools and technology through Project Baseline, including the Baseline Platform, that our partners will leverage to run digitally innovative, patient-centered clinical research programs,” Scarlet Shore, lead for Project Baseline, Verily, told MD+DI. “By engaging more patients and providers, making it easier to conduct research, and using a single operating system to collect higher quality, more real-time, real-world data, we hope to generate better evidence and improve patient outcomes.” Verily launched Project Baseline in 2017 with the goal of bridging the gap between research and care. The compan...

ConclusionWe present a comprehensive mRNA expression profile of chromogranin A positive enteroendocrine cells following RYGB in rats. The data provides a region-specific characterization of all regulated preprohormone encoding genes in the rat GI tract including 16 not hitherto known. The comprehensive catalogue of preprohormone expression changes may support our understanding of hormone mediated effects of RYGB on diabetes remission and body weight reduction.Graphical abstract

ConclusionsOur results indicate an impairment in autophagic flux in PBMCs from people with prediabetes when compared with control subjects in response to both exercise and RAPA treatment. Future methods of autophagic upregulation should be investigated to spare malfunctions in autophagy in people with prediabetes.RésuméObjectifsRécemment, il a été montré qu'un dysfonctionnement de la voie autophagique a été impliqué dans une altération du métabolisme du glucose et une progression d'un prédiabète en diabète de type 2.

Authors: Ojha A, Ojha U, Mohammed R, Chandrashekar A, Ojha H Abstract According to the World Health Organization, 422 million adults worldwide live with diabetes mellitus (DM), a significant portion of whom have type 2 diabetes. The discovery of insulin as a key regulator of glucose metabolism has revolutionized our understanding of DM and provided several therapeutic avenues. Most studies have so far predominantly focused on the role of insulin in type 2 diabetes. However, the balance between insulin and glucagon is essential in ensuring glucose homeostasis. In this review, we begin by evaluating the principal dif...

Authors: Takesue Y, Wei FY, Fukuda H, Tanoue Y, Yamamoto T, Chujo T, Shinojima N, Yano S, Morioka M, Mukasa A, Kuratsu J, Tomizawa K Abstract CDK5 regulatory subunit associated protein 1-like 1 (CDKAL1) is a tRNA-modifying enzyme that catalyzes 2-methylthiolation (ms2) and has been implicated in the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D). CDKAL1-mediated ms2 is important for efficient protein translation and regulates insulin biosynthesis in pancreatic cells. Interestingly, an association between T2D and release of growth hormone (GH) has been reported in humans. However, it is unknown whether CDKAL1 is important for...
