Conclusions The addition of MNBs to culture medium offers an innovative approach for the oxygenation of transplantable tissue, such as islet cells. This study demonstrated that MNBs filled with air provided the most optimal addition to the islet cell culture medium for improving islet cell survival amongst the treatment groups we tested. Given these findings, we hypothesize that MNBs may also improve the oxygenation and survival of a variety of other tissues, including fat grafts from lipoaspirate, chronic wounds, and solid organs.
TYPE 2 diabetes is a lifelong condition that requires careful monitoring to minimise the risks - rising blood sugar levels can spell trouble for people with type 2 diabetes. A natural supplement has been shown to keep blood sugar levels in check.
Authors: Bendlin BB Abstract Given current lack of therapies for dementia, there is substantial interest in identifying potentially modifiable risk factors. Clarifying the potential of these factors to mitigate risk as well as determining the mechanisms that link these factors to dementia is expected to lead to new approaches for both preventing and treating neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer disease. Modifiable factors include cardiovascular risks as well as related lifestyle-centric factors such as diet and physical activity (reviewed in this issue). Given reports that type 2 diabetes and associated fea...
Authors: Christoforaki V, Zafeiriou Z, Daskalakis G, Katasos T, Siristatidis C Abstract In early pregnancy, miscarriage is the most common complication. The early identification of women at high risk for miscarriage could improve pregnancy outcomes. We investigated whether the first trimester neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) could be used as a prognostic marker for miscarriage, in pregnancies after spontaneous conception. We retrospectively identified 129 pregnant women who had a first trimester full blood count available and known pregnancy outcome. First trimester NLR was calculated for each woman and mean NL...

Previous research showed that an artificial neural network (ANN) is a suitable tool for algorithmic MetS diagnostics, that includes solely non-invasive, low-cost and...

Ketosis-prone type 2 diabetes (“Flatbush diabetes”) carries features of both classical type 1 and type 2 diabetes and is highly prevalent in African populations. The disease, which is highly ketosis-prone, but neither chronically insulinopenic nor autoimmune, is discussed regarding pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment from a patient case perspective.
