Probiotic-based therapy for lowering cholesterol, and triglycerides levels: Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) 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/March/2019, 6.41 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 therapy for diabetes: Probiotic bifidobacterium CECT 7765  increases the expression of IGF1R, INSR, and IRS2, and promotes an insulin-sensitized state, via up-regulation of  its target gene Lin28, 5/March/2019, 6.35 pm

 Introduction: What they say:   A study from the Stem Cell Transplantation Program, Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, Boston Children’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, Massachusetts, USA shows that “The Lin28/let-7 axis […]

Probiotic-based therapy for lowering cholesterol, and triglycerides levels: Lactobacillus Paracasei OFS 0291 (LP-0291) 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/March/2019, 6.12 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 autoimmune diabetes (TIDM): Extendin-4(brand name: Byetta, Bydureon, Exenatide), a GLP-1 receptor agonist, increases PD-L1 expression, increases 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, 5/March/2019, 5.59 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 […]
