Regenerative therapy for regaining the lost cardiomyocytes in Myocardial patients: Hyperoside, isolated from Drosera Rotundifolia, and Prunella Vulgaris (Common Self-heal), among others, increases the expression of ERBB2/Her2 and promotes dedifferentiation  of cardiomyocytes via down regulation of its target gene, 29/August/2017, 12.38 am

Introduction: What they say A recent study from the Department of Biological Regulation, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel shows that “ERBB2 triggers mammalian heart regeneration by promoting cardiomyocyte dedifferentiation and proliferation.” This study was […]

Natural product-derived therapy for inflammation and arthritis: Epigallocatechin-3-O- gallate (EGCG) increases IL-9, increases IL-9 levels, increases proliferation of ILC2s (type 2 innate lymphoid cells) and regulatory T (Treg) cells, promotes resolution of inflammation, attenuates cartilage destruction, decreases bone loss, and inhibits pathological features associated with arthritis via up regulation of its target genes, 28/August/2017, 11.48 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from Department of Internal Medicine 3-Rheumatology and Immunology, Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and Universitätsklinikum Erlangen, Erlangen, Germany shows that […]
