Down on Vitamin D? It could be the cause of chronic inflammation
Genetic research shows a direct link between low levels of vitamin D and high levels of inflammation, providing an important biomarker to identify people at higher risk of or severity of chronic illnesses with an inflammatory component.
Design prevents buildup of scar tissue around medical implants
Researchers have designed a new device, which doesn't rely on immunosuppressing drugs, may assist efforts to develop an artificial pancreas to treat diabetes.
E. coli engineered from stool samples can survive the hostile gut environment long enough to treat disease
Scientists have long tried to introduce genetically engineered bacteria into the gut to treat diseases. In the past, these attempts have focused on engineering common lab strains of E. coli, which cannot compete with the native gut bacteria that are well adapted to their host. Now, a group of researchers successfully engineered E. coli collected from both human and mice gut microbiomes and showed that they have the potential to treat diseases such as diabetes.
Potential target for treatment among patients with type 2 diabetes
In a potential game changer for patients with type 2 diabetes, a team of researchers has identified a therapeutic target for the preservation and regeneration of beta cells -- cells in the pancreas that produce and distribute insulin.
Fast food diet before pregnancy can impact breast milk and baby's health, say scientists
A diet high in sugar and fat such as burgers, fries and fizzy drinks can negatively affect a new mother's breast milk and baby's health even before the child is conceived, a new study has found.
