A probiotic way to treat TIIDM and obesity-associated metabolic deficits: Probiotic Lactobaccilus gasseri SBT2055 increases Lipocalin 2 (LCN2) expression, activates an MC4R-dependent anorexigenic pathway, suppresses appetite and weight gain, increases insulin secretion, improves glucose tolerance, promotes glucose homeostasis, improves obesity-associated metabolic deficits and prevents progression to TIIDM via down-regulation of its target gene, 5/October/2018, 11.01 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the Department of Physiology-Cellular Biophysics, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York, New York, USA shows that “MC4R-dependent […]

A probiotic way to stay free of diabetes: Probiotic Lactobacillus gasseri-based therapy for body weight control, energy homeostasis and TIIDM: Probiotic Lactobacillus gasseri inhibits DNA methyltransferase 3a (Dnmt3a) expression, increases FGF21 expression, augments insulin sensitivity, increases glucose tolerance, and protects from diet-induced obesity and TIIDM, via up-regulation of its target gene, 5/September/2018, 10.46 pm

Introduction: What they say  A study from Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology Department, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, United States shows that “Dnmt3a is an epigenetic mediator […]

A probiotic way to lower cholesterol, and triglycerides levels: Probiotic Lactobacillus Gasseri SBT 2055 (LG2055) decreases the levels of HMGCR,  triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), via up-regulation of its target gene, 5/October/2018, 10.27 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 […]

Molecular therapy for inflammation and arthritis:  Lidocaine (brand name: xylocaine and lignocaine), a drug used to treat numb tissue and ventricular tachycardia, 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, 4/October/2018, 6.41 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 […]
