A glycolipid comes to rescue of blood sugar disease: α-Galactosylceramide-based regenerative therapy for reversing diabetes:  α-Galactosylceramide (α-GalCer), a synthetic glycolipid derived from Agelas mauritanius, increases the expression of Sox17, Sox2, Pdx-1, and Ngn3, decreases mTOR expression, promotes regeneration of insulin-producing ß cells, increases insulin secretion, promotes glucose homeostasis and reverses T1D and T2D via down regulation of its target gene, 27/May/2018, 11.34 am

A fibrous way to say no to Cardiomyopathy: β-glucan, found abundantly in oats and barley, decreases the expression of Sox6, restores the balance between slow- and fast-twitch myofiber proteins and alleviates Cardiomyopathy via up regulation of its target gene, 22/May/2018, 11.03 pm

A glycolipid-based therapy for glucose homeostasis and TIIDM: α-Galactosylceramide (α-gal-cer), a synthetic glycolipid, increases Pax6 and insulin expression, decreases the levels of glucagon, ghrelin and Somatostatin, reduces metabolic stress, improves insulin sensitivity, promotes glucose homeostasis and prevents progression to TIIDM via down regulation of its target gene, 18/May/2018, 2.03 pm

cAMP-based adjunct therapy for autoimmune diabetes (TIDM): Dibutyryl cAMP (DBcAMP), an analog of cAMP, 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, 17/May/2018, 7.45 pm
