Experimental compound counters diabetic complications
An experimental compound reduced complications of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in mice -- not by lowering blood sugar -- but by countering its consequences, a new study finds.
Aspirin is linked with increased risk of heart failure in some
Aspirin use is associated with a 26% raised risk of heart failure in people with at least one predisposing factor for the condition.
Twin study finds type 2 diabetes clues in epigenetic changes
Identical twins share the same DNA, but one twin can suffer from type 2 diabetes while the other twin does not develop the disease. Researchers have now discovered that there are differences in gene activity in twins where only one sibling had developed the disease. The discovery could contribute to the development of new treatment methods.
Deleting dysfunctional cells alleviates diabetes
Eliminating old, dysfunctional cells in human fat also alleviates signs of diabetes, researchers report. The discovery could lead to new treatments for Type 2 diabetes and other metabolic diseases.
New link between diet, intestinal stem cells and disease discovered
Obesity, diabetes and gastrointestinal cancer are frequently linked to an unhealthy diet. However, the molecular mechanisms responsible for this are not fully understood. Researchers have gained some new insights that help to better understand this connection. These findings provide an important basis for the development of non-invasive therapies.
