Probiotic-based therapy for lowering cholesterol, and triglycerides levels: Bifidobacterium pseudocatenulatum CECT 7765 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, 8/December/2018, 10.57 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 […]

Probiotic-based chemotherapy targeting cancer stem cells and immune-inhibitory receptors in advanced metastatic cancers: A pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Pimozide, an antipsychotic drug, and probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus increases the expression of tumor suppressor genes, such as KIBRA, p57Kip2,   p53, and TA-p73/p63, inhibits immune-inhibitory receptors/molecules, targets ovarian cancer stem cells, confers protection against chemoresistance and prolongs survival, via up-regulation of its target gene, 8/December/2018, 7.26 pm

What we say: On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, the Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Probiotic-based chemotherapy targeting cancer stem cells […]
