A fair amount of effort is presently put towards the exploration of supplements derived from vitamin B3 compounds (nicotinamide, niacin, nicotinamide riboside) that act as precursors to enable the manufacture of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). NAD is an important component in mitochondrial activity, and levels decline with age. Some portion of the loss of mitochondrial function, implicated in the progression of many age-related conditions, is due to NAD insufficiency. There is a rich history of the use of high doses of vitamin B3 as an intervention, most of it predating modern understanding of the role of NAD in m...

Regional efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 have so far proven successful. Image Credit: Pacific CommunityBy William W. EllisTORONTO, May 29 2020 (IPS) By now, the impact of COVID19 on our daily lives has been well documented, especially in advanced economies. Anxiety about the future continues to grow everywhere. Much of the corporate news coverage we consume has focused on the toll this pandemic will take on mainland countries. Often neglected, however, is the unique position Pacific Island States find themselves in. Globally, there are close to 6 million confirmed cases of COVID19. According to the Pacific Commu...

Contributors : Wouter Eilers ; David Chambers ; Mark Cleasby ; Keith FosterSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Mus musculusMyostatin (GDF8) is a member of the TGF-beta family of proteins which is predominantly expressed in skeletal muscle and acts as a negative regulator of muscle mass. Inhibition of myostatin leads to muscle hypertrophy and has been shown to mitigate insulin resistance in mouse models of type 2 diabetes, although the mechanisms underlying this effect are unclear. We found that myostatin inhibition by AAV-mediated overexpression of the myostatin propeptide improves skeletal muscle insulin...

Abstract An Uncommon Cause of Arterial Hypertension Abstract. A 54-year-old patient was suffering from arterial hypertension, which was not treated sufficiently despite an antihypertensive therapy with three different types of drugs. In addition, the patient complained an increase in weight of ten kilos during the last year and a new onset of diabetes mellitus type 2. Investigations as to secondary forms of hypertension by MRI revealed an adrenal tumor with a diameter of approx. 6 cm suspect for an adrenal carcinoma. An ACTH-independent cushing syndrome was diagnosed by 24-hour urines collection, 1-mg dexamethason...

This study compared the insulin lispro pharmacokinetics and glucodynamics, safety and tolerability of URLi and Humalog® after a single subcutaneous dose in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).MethodsThis was a phase I, randomised, two-period, two-treatment, double-blind, crossover study in 38 patients with T2DM. At each dosing visit, patients received either 15 units of URLi or Humalog, followed by a 10  h automated euglycaemic clamp procedure. Serum insulin lispro and blood glucose were measured.ResultsInsulin lispro appeared in the serum 5  min faster (p
