University of Colorado at Boulder The greater prevalence of asthma, allergies and other chronic inflammatory disorders among people of lower socioeconomic status might be due in part to their reduced exposure to the microbes that thrive in rural environments, according to a new scientific paper. The article, published in the journal Clinical & Experimental Immunology, argues that people living in urban centers who have less access to green spaces may be more apt to have chronic...

The presence of chronic inflammation in benign prostate tissue was associated with high-grade, or aggressive, prostate cancer, and this association was found even in those with low prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, according to a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. An analysis of prostate tissue biopsies collected from some participants of the placebo arm of the Prostate Cancer Prevention...

Bacterial toxins activate fat cells producing chronic inflammation, which in turn boosts risk of developing diabetes Making fat cells immortal might seem like a bad idea to most people, but for a team of University of Iowa scientists it was the ideal way to study how the interaction between bacteria and fat cells might contribute to diabetes. The connection between fat, bacteria, and diabetes is inflammation, which is the body's normal reaction to infection or injury. Inflammation is...

Diabetes is strongly associated with socioeconomic status (SES): low income, low education, and low occupational status are all linked to a higher risk for diabetes. Trying to understand the mechanisms underlying the association, Silvia Stringhini from the Institute for Social and Preventive Medicine in Lausanne, Switzerland and colleagues report in this week's PLOS Medicine that a substantial part of it appears to be attributable to chronic inflammation. "Taking together the evidence...

California Institute of Technology When infections occur in the body, stem cells in the blood often jump into action by multiplying and differentiating into mature immune cells that can fight off illness. But repeated infections and inflammation can deplete these cell populations, potentially leading to the development of serious blood conditions such as cancer. Now, a team of researchers led by biologists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has found that, in mouse models,...

Chronic inflammation contributes to a host of medical conditions affecting people, companion pets and horses but being proactive can help keep that inflammation under control. Cur-OST® is a curcumin based all natural anti-inflammatory supplement that has demonstrated the ability to reduce chronic inflammation through modulation of two key transcription factors; NF-kB and NRF2, thereby reducing inflammation and also enhancing the immune response which may impact a variety of clinical...

This discovery holds the potential to reduce healthcare costs for many common inflammatory diseases such as cancer and diabetesSingapore, Nov 21, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - A*STAR scientists have identified the enzyme, telomerase, as a cause of chronic inflammation in human cancers. Chronic inflammation is now recognized as a key underlying cause for the development of many human cancers, autoimmune disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and metabolic diseases such as diabetes. This enzyme,...

Chronic inflammation has been recognized by doctors as linked to a number of serious and fatal diseases. Prograde's new product, Genesis, aims to help people fight it. West Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) October 07, 2012 Cancer and heart disease are perhaps the two most well-known fatal diseases. But as scientists continue to study the causes of a variety of potentially fatal medical conditions, a new threat is now being labeled the “silent killer” — chronic inflammation....

Research published today in Biomed Central's open access journal Journal of Neuroinflammation suggests that chronic inflammation can predispose the brain to develop Alzheimer's disease. To date it has been difficult to pin down the role of inflammation in Alzheimer's disease (AD), especially because trials of NSAIDs appeared to have conflicting results. Although the ADAPT (The Alzheimer`s Disease Anti-inflammatory Prevention Trial) trial was stopped early, recent results suggest that...
