Bariatric surgery for safeguarding your heart against cardiac dysfunction: Bariatric surgery, a gastrointestinal surgery for weight loss, decreases tumor suppressor Mir-128 and cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27 expression, increases SUZ12 expression, increases Cyclin E and CDK2 expression, promotes proliferation/re-entry of postnatal/adult cardiomyocytes, attenuates fibrosis, ameliorates cardiac dysfunction, and promotes heart repair in response to myocardial infarction, via up-regulation of its target gene, 30/April/2019, 11.48 pm

Introduction: What they say: A recent study from Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Cincinnati, OH, 45267, USA; Key Laboratory […]

NNeuropeptide Y functions as a longevity-promoting agent: Neuropeptide Y (NPY), a 36 amino-acid neuropeptide that stimulates food intake, inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian life span, via up regulation of its target gene, 29/April/2019, 10.52 pm

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 […]

Have copious amount of natural sugar Isomaltulose, not sucrose (table sugar), and stop worrying about cholesterol, and triglycerides levels: Isomaltulose (Palatinose TM), a disaccharide composed of glucose and fructose (linked by an alpha-1,6-glycosidic bond), 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, 29/April/2019, 10.29 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 […]

Low-salt diet shuts-off perception of pain: Mechanistic insights into how caloric restriction functions as a pain medication:  Low-salt diet (0.075%) 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, 29/April/2019, 10.04  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 […]
