ConclusionDiabetes-induced significant decline in orexin B levels in the plasma along with a decrease in the expression of sirtuin 1 and HIF-1α in the heart following ischemia-reperfusion injury may possibly contribute in exacerbating the myocardial injury and vascular dysfunction.

Authors: Zhang Z, Wang J, Zhu Y, Zhang H, Wang H Abstract The aim of the present study was to evaluate the protective effect and mechanism of Astragaloside IV (ASIV) on myocardial injury induced by type 2 diabetes, with a focus on energy metabolism. Blood glucose, the hemodynamic index, left ventricular weight/heart weight (LVW/HW), the left ventricular systolic pressure (LVSP), the left ventricular end diastolic pressure (LVEDP) and cell survival rate were measured in streptozotocin‑induced diabetes model rats. Western blot analysis, PCR, hematoxylin‑eosin and TUNEL staining, flow cytometry...

This study aimed to investigate the possibility of delivery of SLM via nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) to overcome these issues and for preparation of an oral dosage form. NLCs were prepared through an emulsion/evaporation/solidifying method. Cetyl palmitate:Lauroglycol 90 was selected as the lipid mixture and Brij S20 as surfactant. NLCs were chemically and physically characterized. Encapsulation efficiency was more than 92%. The storage stability of the NLC suspension was also investigated and the freeze-drying process was taken into consideration. After assessing the stability of the formulation in a simulated gast...

Authors: Giovos G, Yavropoulou MP, Yovos JG Abstract The improving effectiveness of health care leads inevitably to a rapid increase in the elderly population worldwide. At advanced ages, however, people experience chronic disabilities, which significantly increase the social and economic burden while curtailing survival, independence, and quality of life of the aging population. As aging is a multifactorial process, apart from genetic predisposition, other environmental factors, such as chronic sterile inflammation and cellular senescence, contribute as crucial participants and have been targeted to reverse their ...

The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of ginger supplementation in adjunct with non-surgical periodontal therapy (NSPT) on metabolic and periodontal parameters in patients with type 2 DM (T2DM) and chronic periodontitis (CP).Material and methodsIn this double-blind clinical trial study, 50 T2DM patients with CP were randomly allocated to intervention and control groups and received either 2 g ginger or placebo (4 tablets) twice a day for 8 weeks. All subjects underwent NSPT during the intervention period. Fasting blood glucose (FBG), glycosylated hemoglobin levels (HbA1c), triglyceride (TG), tot...

ConclusionResearch found that 25-OH-PPT can reduce blood glucose and enhance glucose tolerance in STZ model mice. It increases insulin sensitivity by upregulating GLUT4 and AMPK in skeletal muscle, and activating insulin signaling pathways. In DB/DB mice, 25-OH-PPT achieves hypoglycemic effects mainly by activating the insulin signaling pathway. Meanwhile, through the influence of liver inflammatory factors and lipids in serum, it can be seen that 25-OH-PPT has obvious anti-inflammatory and lipid-lowering effects. These results provide new insights into the study of ginseng as a functional food.Graphical abstract

Publication date: Available online 9 November 2019Source: Journal of Molecular BiologyAuthor(s): Eckhard Lammert, Peter ThornAbstractThe islets of Langerhans or pancreatic islets are pivotal in the control of blood glucose and are complex micro-organs embedded within the larger volume of the exocrine pancreas. Humans can have ∼3.2 million islets [1] which, to our current knowledge, function in a similar manner to sense circulating blood glucose levels and respond with the secretion of a mix of different hormones that act to maintain glucose concentrations around a specific set point [2]. At a cellular level the control...
