Neutrophils' role is a surprise -- and a potential new target for treating diabetes
Male and female mice engineered to express the inflammatory enzyme IKKbeta in their fat tissue ate more but gained less weight.
Fish oil was deemed the â€œmiracle food of the 21st centuryâ€ because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetes benefits, among many others.
Inflammation-causing cells in fat tissue may explain the link between obesity and diabetes, a team of Walter and Eliza Hall Institute researchers in Melbourne, Australia, has shown.
Recent decades have seen a huge increase in type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
An experimental oral drug has lowered blood sugar levels and inflammation in mice with Type 2 diabetes, suggesting that the medication could someday be added to the arsenal of drugs used by millions of Americans with this disease, according to new research.
Although obesity is a risk factor for diabetes and coronary heart disease worldwide, only some obese individuals go on to develop these metabolic complications, while others are relatively protected.
Chronic inflammation within fat tissue is now recognized as a contributor to the many negative consequences that come with obesity -- from diabetes to cardiovascular disease, according to Yuichi Oike of Kumamoto University in Japan. Researchers hope a new discovery will point to a targeted therapy designed to limit the impact of the obesity epidemic.
An exploration of the molecular links between insulin resistance and inflammation may have revealed a novel target for diabetes treatment, say scientists at the John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
