The tiny probiotic Bacillus clausii  may function as a Pain medication:  Probiotic Bacillus clausii 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, 21/November/2018, 12.01 am

 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 Brain Science, Fudan University, Shanghai, China; and Department of Neurobiology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, US shows that “PD-L1 inhibits acute and chronic pain by suppressing nociceptive […]

Hot water immersion therapy for body weight control, energy homeostasis, and TIIDM: Hot water immersion therapy (39°C for 1 h ) increases REV-ERB and its downstream target genes, inhibits lipid accumulation, improves dyslipidemia and insulin sensitivity, increases energy utilization, promotes weight loss and protects from diet-induced obesity and TIIDM, via up-regulation of its target gene, 20/November/2018, 11.55 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the Department of Molecular Therapeutics, The Scripps Research Institute, Jupiter, Florida 33458, USA shows that “Regulation of circadian behaviour and metabolism by synthetic REV-ERB agonists.” This research paper was published, in the 29 March 2012 issue of the journal “Nature” [One of the best research journals in Science […]

The tiny probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus may function as a Pain medication:  Probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus 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, 20/November/2018, 11.42 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 Brain Science, Fudan University, Shanghai, China; and Department of Neurobiology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, US shows that “PD-L1 inhibits acute and chronic pain by suppressing nociceptive […]

Hot water immersion therapy for Myocardial Infarction:  Hot water immersion inhibits DNA damage responses, induces telomerase expression, inhibits telomere shortening, and promotes cardiomyocyte survival after myocardial infarction, via up-regulation of PNUTS, 20/November/2018, 11.17 pm

What they say:  A recent study from the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germany shows that “MicroRNA-34a regulates cardiac ageing and function.” This study was published, in the 7 March  2013 issue of of the journal Nature,  by Prof Dimmler, Boon, and others. What we say:  On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Hot water immersion therapy for […]

A sweet way to treat Metastatic cancers: Xylobiose, a disaccharide of xylose, increases the expression of tumor/metastatic suppressors PTPN14 and RB1, inhibits cell cycle progression, and suppresses migration, invasion and metastasis of cancer cells via up-regulation of its target gene, 19/November/2018, 11.58 pm

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:  Given that: (i) each year nearly 14 million people are diagnosed with cancer globally, and little more than half of them will die; (ii) cancer deaths globally are expected to be doubled by 2030; (iii) most of the cancer patients die due to metastasis; (iv) cancer treatment causes […]

Molecular therapy for aging-associated diseases and Lifespan extension: Verapamil, an anti-hypertensive drug, increases NMN/NAD levels, decreases interaction of DBC1 with PARP1, increases PARP1 activity, promotes DNA repair, augments tolerance against radiation, cancer and aging via down-regulation of its target gene, 19/November/2018, 11.51 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from Department of Genetics, Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA; and Department of Pharmacology, School of Medical Sciences, The University of New South Wales, Sydney, New South Wales 2052, Australia shows that “A conserved NAD+ binding pocket that regulates protein-protein […]
