Music-based adjuvant therapy for autoimmune diabetes (TIDM): Music therapy increases PD-L1 expression,  augments Tregs function, promotes immune tolerance, increases pancreatic β-cell proliferation and regeneration, increases insulin secretion, improves insulin sensitivity, increases energy utilization, and reverses TIDM, via up-regulation of its target gene, 19/October/2018, 4.34 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the International Center for T1D, Pediatric Clinical Research Center Romeo ed Enrica Invernizzi, “L. Sacco” Department of Biomedical and […]

Music-based adjuvant therapy for lowering cholesterol, and triglycerides levels:  Music decreases the levels of HMGCR,  triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD, via down-regulation of its target gene, 19/October/2018, 4.19 pm

The significance of the study: Given that: (1)  15-30% of Western populations suffer from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), while 6-25% of Asian populations suffer from it; (2) 75 […]

The tiny probiotic Bb12 may function as a Pain medication:  Probiotic Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. lactis Bb12 (Bb12) increases the expression of PD-L1, attenuates acute and chronic pain, and suppresses mechanical and thermal hypersensitivity and inhibits nociceptive neuron excitability, via up-regulation of its target gene, 18/October/2018, 11.35 pm

Introduction: What they say: A recent study from Institute of Neurobiology, Institutes of Brain Science and State Key Laboratory of Medical Neurobiology, Collaborative Innovation Center for […]

A cup of probiotic a day keeps cardiac diseases at bay: Probiotic Lactobacillus pentosus var. plantarum C29 inhibits DNA damage responses, induces telomerase expression, inhibits telomere shortening, and promotes cardiomyocyte survival after myocardial infarction, via up-regulation of PNUTS, 18/October/2018, 11.19 pm

What they say:  A recent study from the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germany shows that “MicroRNA-34a regulates cardiac aging and function.” This study was published, in the 7 March  2013 issue of the […]
