Anti-malarial Drug may Help Reduce Risk of Diabetes in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients

...tudies indicate that antimalarials improve insulin secretion and peripheral insulin sensitivity. Mary Chester M. Wasko, M.D., M.Sc., of the University of Pittsburgh, Pa., and colleagues examined the association between hydroxychloroquine therapy and risk of diabetes in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. ...

Cytokine IL6 as a New Chemotherapeutic Target for Ras-driven Cancers

...ounters team has demonstrated that Ras induces the secretion of IL6 in a number of different cell types. The scientists then showed that IL6 promotes tumorigenesis by encouraging new blood vessel growth. Dr. Counter and colleagues were able to successfully fight tumor formation in a preclinical model by supp...

Researchers Find New Target for Anti-cancer Drugs

...eractive ras gene was responsible for above-normal secretion of a factor known as interleukin-6 (IL-6). Scientists know a great deal about IL-6 and its functions in the body, but its link to oncogenic ras was unknown. In addition to finding that the ras oncogene spurred the production of IL-6, they also foun...

Researchers Have Found the Role of Protein in Accelerating Breast Cancer Progression

...s breast cancer progression but that by itself PTN secretion from human breast cancer cells may be sufficient to shift that progression to a more aggressive form of breast cancer," he said. As a part of the study, three animal models were tested to determine if inappropriate expression of PTN alone was suffic...

The autophagy-deficient mouse embryonic bodies failed to develop normally because their cells didn’t expose phosphatidylserine and secreted low levels of lysophosphatidylcholine, the study shows. “In ...

Scientists Explore Ways to Reduce Insulin Resistance by ‘handcuffing’ Gens

...lencing a gene for a peptide involved// in insulin secretion will not only reduce insulin resistance, in animal models, it will also help avoid the drawbacks associated with a high calorie diet. The peptide in question is ucocortin 3. This was discovered after ucocortin 2. Both are peptides produced in th...
