Obesity treatment using stem cells is the topic of 2013's most-visited news release on EurekAlert!
Date:2/5/2014

For the second year in a row, obesity research features prominently in the group of 10 most-visited news releases posted on EurekAlert! during the 2013 calendar year. The year's most-visited release details a technique that triggers muscle stem cells to turn into brown fat, a type of "good fat" that is known to burn energy and correlate with lower body mass. Two other news releases in the top 10 most-visited also concern obesity research.

Other subjects covered in 2013's list of most visited news releases are energy efficiency, animal behavior, mental health, and several other diverse fields.

Web traffic statistics collected during 2013 identified the 10 most-viewed releases on EurekAlert!. The No. 1 most-visited release captured more than 660,000 views.

For second consecutive year, obesity research is prevalent among the 10 most-visited news releases

Included in the list of 2013's most-viewed news releases are three items about obesity research.

In the first, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute scientists, along with colleagues from Canada, Denmark and the Netherlands, report on the discovery of a gene regulator called microRNA-133, which induces adult muscle stem cells to turn into muscle fiber and brown fat. Brown fat is a type of tissue that burns energy, regulates body temperature, and is associated with lower amounts of white fat in the body the presence of large amounts of white fat constitutes obesity. The researchers caution that the discovery does not guarantee obese individuals will lose weight if treated with microRNA-133, but rather that it is a "first step" toward learning more about how the gene regulator can work. The research appeared in the journal Cell Metabolism.

The ninth release, posted by the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, describes a potential gene therapy for obesity and its associated diseases. Researchers observed in a mouse study that blocking the gene TRIP-Br2 kept s
