Researchers at Joslin Diabetes Center have shown that while a type of "good" fat found in the body can be activated by cold temperatures, it is not able to be activated by the drug ephedrine.
Researchers at the Joslin Diabetes Center have identified for the first time two molecular pathways that are critical to activating a type of "good" fat found in the body, a discovery that could play an important role in the fight against obesity and diabetes.
Researchers at Joslin Diabetes Center and Childrenâ€™s Hospital Boston have shown that a type of â€œgoodâ€ fat known as brown fat occurs in varying amounts in children â€“ increasing until puberty and then declining -- and is most active in leaner children.
Previously thought. The results, which suggest a new way to treat obesity, were presented at The Endocrine Society's 91st Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. Brown fat burns off calories and generates heat in babies and small mammals.
