Paul Spivak invents another revolutionary product. Mentor, Ohio (PRWEB) October 07, 2011 According to company president, Paul Spivak, this patented scientific breakthrough is to provide a photometric method for noninvasively measuring blood glucose concentration in vivo in which a pulse of light is projected onto a selected area of the body rich in blood vessels (such as the inner wrist, elbow or ear lobe),transmitted through the skin, tissues, and blood vessels, partially absorbed by...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- What do you know; two culprits turn out to be related!  Cancer and diabetes appear to have some biology in common.  A pathway that initially drew attention for its role in embryonic stem cells and cancer also influences the odds that mice develop or resist diabetes. According to a new study, mice with high levels of the cancer-promoting proteins become more sensitive to insulin and less prone to diabetes when on a high-fat diet. "This highlights the...

Contrary to what you might think, cancer and diabetes appear to have some biology in common. According to a report in the September 30th issue of the Cell Press journal, Cell, a pathway that initially drew attention for its role in embryonic stem cells and cancer also influences the odds that mice develop or resist diabetes. Mice with high levels of the cancer-promoting proteins Lin28a or Lin28b become more sensitive to insulin and less prone to diabetes when on a high-fat diet, the new...

Researchers at the John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have identified a powerful molecular pathway that regulates the liver's management of insulin and new glucose production, which could lead to new therapies for diabetes. The findings were published online this week in Diabetes, a journal of the American Diabetes Association. Usually, the liver stores excess blood sugar as glycogen, which it...

If the brain goes hungry, Twinkies look a lot better, a study led by researchers at Yale University and the University of Southern California has found. Brain imaging scans show that when glucose levels drop, an area of the brain known to regulate emotions and impulses loses the ability to dampen desire for high-calorie food, according to the study published online September 19 in The Journal of Clinical Investigation. "Our prefrontal cortex is a sucker for glucose," said Rajita Sinha,...

Study reveals that insulin-stimulated glucose uptake–a process that breaks down in type 2 diabetes–requires a previously unidentified protein called CDP138 All cells need glucose (sugar) to produce the energy they need to survive. High glucose levels in the bloodstream (such as occur after a meal), trigger the pancreas to produce insulin. In turn, muscle and fat cells respond to insulin by moving GLUT4, a glucose transporter, from intracellular storage out to the cell surface....

University of Illinois scientists have engineered a new strain of yeast that converts seaweed into biofuel in half the time it took just months ago. That's a process that's important outside the Corn Belt, said Yong-Su Jin, a University of Illinois assistant professor of microbial genomics and a faculty member in its Institute for Genomic Biology. "The key is the strain's ability to ferment cellobiose and galactose simultaneously, which makes the process much more efficient," Jin said....

Obesity and type 2 diabetes have long been linked, but a new study has discovered exactly how high-fat diets serve as a catalyst for a sequence of events that ultimately lead to the onset of the disease. Researchers, including Jamey D. Marth, Ph.D., the director of the Center for Nanomedicine, studied both humans and mice, and "discovered a pathway to disease that is activated in pancreatic beta cells, and then leads to metabolic defects in other organs and tissues, including the liver,...
