Effects of dietary and physical activity interventions on the risk of type 2 diabetes in South Asians: meta-analysis of individual participant data from randomised controlled trials

Conclusions/interpretationDespite modest changes for adiposity, lifestyle modification interventions in high-risk South Asian populations resulted in a clinically important 35% relative reduction in diabetes incidence, consistent across subgroups. If implemented on a large scale, lifestyle modification interventions in high-risk South Asian populations in Europe would reduce the incidence of diabetes in these populations.

Epidemiological and experimental works support the link between type 2 diabetes and breast cancer; these data support that insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, and elevated levels of IGF-1 in patients with type II diabetes mellitus promote growth and invasiveness of tumor cells. The aim of the present work was to determine, by microarray, the mechanisms ...

Calorie restriction is the best studied of all interventions shown to slow aging and extend life in short-lived laboratory species. In humans it produces significant health gains, somewhat greater than any established medical technology can provide to essentially healthy individuals, at least until the broader advent of senolytic drugs. Unfortunately, it does not extend life by any great degree in long-lived species such as our own. The response to calorie restriction serves to increase evolutionary fitness during periods of famine, increasing the odds of individuals surviving to reproduce once food is plentiful again. Sea...

Demin, Allan V. Kalueff, Cai SongAbstractNeuroinflammation and metabolic deficits contribute to the etiology of human affective disorders, such as anxiety and depression. The zebrafish (Danio rerio) has recently emerged as a powerful new model organism in CNS disease modeling. Here, we exposed zebrafish to 2% glucose and 10% cholesterol for 19 days to experimentally induce type 2 diabetes (DM) and to assess stress responses, microglia,...
