Study finds that the NBR1 protein plays a critical role in regulating obesity-induced inflammation that leads to metabolic disease.
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Second Genome announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Pfizer Inc.
Working with a national team of researchers, a scientist from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute has shown for the first time a link between low levels of a specific hormone and increased risk of metabolic disease in humans.
A recent study by researchers at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), published in the July 3 issue of Cell Metabolism, has identified the link between metabolic disease and cancer.
A new study by Johns Hopkins researchers has found that insulin, the sugar-regulating hormone, is required for normal bone development and that it may provide a link between bone health and metabolic disease, such as diabetes.
SAN DIEGO, May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- aTyr announced today that John Mendlein, Ph. D., has joined their Board of Directors as Executive Chairman. The translation of aTyr's newly found class of proteins, resectins, into medicines of the future will benefit from Dr.
Scientists at Galileo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. have demonstrated a direct relationship between inflammation and glucose levels. Through its recently established metabolic disease program, Galileo confirmed in preclinical models that inhibiting lipoxygenases, known mediators of inflammatory response, significantly lowers blood glucose levels in animal models of diabetes.
During the last decade researchers have made a number of important discoveries about the molecular mechanisms regulating aging. This research has suggested the exciting prospect that the rate of aging can be manipulated and slowed, leading to longer human lifespan.
