Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in polycystic ovarian syndrome in Indian women
J Obstet Gynaecol. 2021 Oct 23:1-5. doi: 10.1080/01443615.2021.1969346. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNon-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a frequent occurrence in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). We studied the frequencies and characteristics of NAFLD in PCOS women. We compared various methods of detection of advanced fibrosis/cirrhosis. One hundred and forty women with PCOS and seventy controls, matched for age, were evaluated for the presence of NAFLD. Anthropometric variables, serum levels of aminotransferases, glucose, lipids and transient elastography were done. Thirty-six percent of the NAFLD patients had abnormal aminotransferases. In women presenting to an infertility clinic, NAFLD was higher in both obese and non-obese PCOS women, being present in 117 (83.6%) of PCOS cases and 32 (45.7%) of non-PCOS controls (p

The development, progression, and therapy response of cancer is determined by the evolution of intratumor heterogeneity. How extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling regulates the phenotypic diversity of tumor and stromal cells and which consequences these changes have on malignancy, however, remains poorly understood. Increasing knowledge of these connections is critical as aberrant ECM remodeling often precedes tumor development (e.g. during obesity), regulates many different hallmarks of cancer including proliferation, metabolism, and angiogenesis, and can be used to diagnose and treat cancer more effectively. Studying the...

Insulin resistance is a cornerstone of obesity-related complications such as type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. A high rate of lipolysis is known to be associated with insulin resistance, and inhibiting adipose tissue lipolysis improves obesity-related insulin resistance. Here, we demonstrate that inhibition of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine [5-HT]) signaling through serotonin receptor 2B (HTR2B) in adipose tissues ameliorates insulin resistance by reducing lipolysis in visceral adipocytes. Chronic high-fat diet (HFD) feeding increased Htr2b expression in epididymal white adipose tis...
