The down regulation of PTP1B expression and attenuation of disturbed glucose and lipid metabolism using Borassus flabellifer (L) fruit methanol extract in High Fat Diet and Streptozotocin induced diabetic rats

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: Saudi Journal of Biological SciencesAuthor(s): V. Duraipandiyan, R. Balamurugan, Naif Abdullah Al-Dhabi, T. William Raja, P. Ganesan, B. Ahilan, M. Valan Arasu, S. Ignacimuthu, Galal Ali EsmailAbstractBorassus flabellifer L. is a tall palm traditionally used for its stimulating, diuretic and anti-inflammatory activities; it is rich in fibers and various pharmacologically important secondary metabolites. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the antidiabetic effects of Borassus flabellifer fruit methanol extract (BF-M) on diabetic rats induced with High Fat Diet (HFD) / streptozotocin (STZ). When BF-M (100 or 200 mg/kg) was administered for 21 days orally it led to a sharp decline in triglycerides, total cholesterol, free unsaturated fat, glucose-6-phosphate, fasting blood glucose and fructose 1,6 bisphosphatase in contrast to diabetic control. BF-M also downregulated Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase 1B. In vitro study showed the IC50 value to be 23.98 μg/mL. BF-M significantly increased serum insulin, glycogen content, and body weight. Western blot analysis exhibited significant inhibition of PTP1B in pancreatic tissue which was confirmed by histology and immunohistological studies. GC-MS analysis showed the presence of major compounds such as 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (47.56%), Guanosine (21.01%) and n-hecxadeconoic acid (25.14 %) in BF-M. In short, BF-M exerted antidiabetic property by down regulating PTP1B expr...

CONCLUSIONS: The presence of one or more prognostic factors as well as the various risk prediction models can guide selection of ACS patient subgroups for which a prophylactic CEA should or should not be offered. Decisions to offer prophylactic CEA should weigh in factors like surgeon's experience and hospital expertise/volume. Asymptomatic patients not expected to live long enough to benefit from the procedure should not be considered for CEA, but should be offered best medical treatment.

ConclusionsComputational measures reflecting individual PVS size, length and width were more strongly associated with WMH, stroke and hypertension than computational count or visual PVS score. Multidimensional computational PVS metrics may increase sensitivity to detect associations of PVS with risk exposures, brain lesions and neurological disease, provide greater anatomic detail and accelerate sunderstanding of disorders of brain fluid and waste clearance.Graphical abstract

ConclusionCompared with placebo or any other comparator, PCSK9-mAb treatment was not associated with the adverse event of diabetes. However, evolocumab and alirocumab show high risk of incident diabetes when there is no interference from unbalanced use of statins. The imbalance in background lipid modifying therapy or different comparators used in the control arms of the studies might have masked the effect of PCSK9-mAb therapy on diabetes.

This study aimed to determine, in women with gestational diabetes (GDM), the changes in insulin sensitivity (Matsuda Insulin Sensitivity Index; ISOGTT), insulin response and disposition index (DI) from late pregnancy (34 –37 weeks gestation, T1), to early postpartum (1–5 days, T2) and late postpartum (6–12 weeks, T3). A secondary aim was to correlate the longitudinal changes in maternal lipids, adipokines, cytokines and weight in relation to the changes in ISOGTT, insulin response and DI.MethodsISOGTT, insulin response and DI were calculated at the three time points (T1, T2 and T3) using th...
