Steroid hormone may attenuate arthritic pain: Progesterone (P4)-based therapy for inflammation and arthritis:Progesterone (P4), an endogenous steroid that plays a role in the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, embryogenesis, and others, increases IL-9 levels, augments 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, 11/August/2018, 10.41 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 […]

Awakening the sleeping/cancer-protecting angels in mutant p53-expressing human tumors: Emodin, isolated from Rhubarb and others,  increases the expression of tumor suppressors genes, such as  RhoB, p57Kip2, TA-p73, TAp63, p53, and others, induces regression of p53-mutated human tumors, via down-regulation of its target gene, 11/August/2018, 10.17 pm

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:  Given that: (1) cancer suppressor p53 is mutated in more than 50% of human cancers of different […]

An essential component of contraceptive/birth control pill 17α-Ethinyl Estradiol (EE) may extend lifespan and healthspan: 17α-Ethinyl Estradiol (EE), one of the components of contraceptives and birth control pills, inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian lifespan, via upregulation of its target gene, 11/August/2017, 8.54 am

What they say:  A study from the Institute of Healthy Ageing, Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology, Department of Medicine, University College London, London WC1E 6JJ, UK shows that “Ribosomal […]
