Diabetes New Insulin Sensitizers Discovered

A new study, led by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center, indicates that it may be possible to improve insulin sensitivity while avoiding these adverse effects. The findings were published online in Cell. Insulin, a hormone made in the pancreas, signals cells to grab glucose out of the bloodstream and use it

Novel Circuit Design Boosts Wearable Thermoelectric Generators

Because of their symmetrical fractal wiring patterns, the devices can be cut to the size needed to provide the voltage and power requirements for specific applications. The modular generators could be inkjet printed on flexible substrates, including fabric, and manufactured using inexpensive roll-to-roll techniques. "The attraction of thermoelectric generators is that

Diabetes Medicine Reduces Parkinson’s Risk

Researchers at the Department of Clinical Medicine at the University of Bergen (UiB) have discovered that medical treatment against diabetes reduces the risk of getting Parkinson´s disease by 35 per cent. "We have made an important discovery, which takes us a step further towards solving the Parkinson´s riddle," says researcher Charalampos

Health Benefits of Olives and Olive Oil

However, little was previously known about what specific compounds and biochemical interactions in the fruit contribute to its medical and nutritional benefits such as weight loss and prevention of type 2 diabetes. A Virginia Tech research team discovered that the olive-derived compound oleuropein helps the body secrete more insulin, a central

Immune Cells Help Fat Deal With Environmental Challenges

The number of obese people as well as those suffering from type 2 diabetes is increasing worldwide. Both disorders are associated with metabolic changes including amplified inflammatory responses in adipose tissue. "Previous studies have indicated that immunosuppressive regulatory T-cells -- or Tregs for short -- play an important role in

Newly Emerged Superbug Discovered

Prof. Chen Sheng, Professor of ABCT, collaborating with Prof. Rong Zhang from the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University, conducted an investigation into a fatal outbreak of pneumonia in the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University in China in February 2016. The study involved five patients who underwent surgical operation
