A long myth that how coconut oil lowers cholesterol and triglyceride and increases HDL levels is explained: Lauric acid-based therapy for Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD):Lauric acid (C12) or Dodecanoic acid, one of the main components of  coconut oil, promotes degradation of HMGCR, decreases the levels of triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD via down-regulation of its target gene, 9/June/2018, 11.17 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 chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and advanced metastatic cancers: A pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Venetoclax and Ibrutinib (VAI) and probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus increases the expression of tumor suppressor genes, such as TIMP3, PTPN14, p53, and TA-p73/p63, inhibits immune-inhibitory receptors/molecules, targets cancer stem cells, confers protection against chemoresistance and prolongs survival, and stalls CLL progression, via up-regulation of its target gene, 09/June/2019, 6.23 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA shows that “Ibrutinib and Venetoclax for First-Line Treatment of CLL.” This research […]
