Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism—the way the body uses digested food for growth and energy. Most of the food people eat is broken down into glucose, the form of sugar in the blood. Glucose is the main source of fuel for the body.
New advancements in the transplantation of stem cell-derived insulin-producing beta cells to cure type 1 diabetes have created substantial curiosity.
According to a new study, simultaneous measurement of dozens of types of fats in the blood known as “lipidomics”, can predict the risk of type 2 diabetes.
An interdisciplinary research team at The University of Texas at San Antonio has successfully developed an innovative inhibitor that shows promise in fighting obesity and potentially preventing heart disease.
Scientists have observed for the very first time that insulin-producing cells in the pancreas are attacked by T lymphocytes during the evolution of Type 1 Diabetes.
One of the most important and difficult aspects of a forensic examination is identifying the cause of death.
AMSBIO reports how researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine (St. Louis, USA) have used their 10E4 Heparan Sulfate (HS) antibody in pioneering obesity research to quantify the role of HS in the process of intercellular mitochondria transfer to macrophages.
The building blocks of life-saving therapeutics could be developed in days instead of years thanks to new software that simulates evolution.
Human’s inherent genetic variants can increase or decrease the risk of getting sick with COVID-19.
The Translational Genomics Research Institute, an affiliate of City of Hope, is partnering with a Silicon Valley firm to become one of the first research institutes in the world to employ a new Artificial Intelligence-powered imaging and sorting technology to classify and isolate individual diseased cells.
Dignity Health in Arizona is introducing the first research study in North America that will use genetic testing to pinpoint men and women who are at risk of developing a cardiovascular disease based on the composition of their DNA.
The immune system has its cells all around the body, and they are constantly doing their work even if the body is in great shape.
A*STAR’s GIS and ID Labs have discovered KCNJ15, a gene linked to the human immune system’s ability to combat TB and maybe other infectious diseases.
Fat tissue plays an important role in human health. However, our fat tissue loses function as we age, which can lead to type 2 diabetes, obesity, cancer and other ailments.
In this interview, we speak to Dr. Santiago Miriuka, CEO of MultiplAI Health, about the importance of having diverse genomics data in research.
New studies emerge daily on the effect of the human microbiome on human health: colon cancer, ulcers, and cognitive conditions such as Alzheimer's disease have been associated with the communities of microbes that live in our bodies.
According to research, the brain’s capacity to clear a protein closely associated with Alzheimer’s disease is tied to the circadian cycle.
QUT PhD researcher Lauren Ashwood has studied sea anemones' venom makeup extensively, in particular, Telmatactis stephensoni a reef-based sea anemone that can grow from 8 to 10 cm.
CRISPR genome editing has served as a powerful tool for deleting or altering DNA sequences and studying the resulting effect.
For decades, a small group of cutting-edge medical researchers have been studying a biochemical, DNA tagging system, which switches genes on or off. Many have studied it in bacteria and now some have seen signs of it in, plants, flies, and even human brain tumors.
Data is not only the answer to numerous questions in the business world; the same applies to biomedical research. In order to develop new therapies or prevention strategies for diseases, scientists need more and better data, faster and faster.
