Since then, the hospital has extended its leukoreducti...

In obesity, brain becomes 'unaware' of fat

... “Previous studies have suggested that SOCS-3 is a negative regulator of leptin,?Cowley said. “As animals become bigger and fatter and leptin increases, SOCS-3 may rise to decrease the signal. It seems that in obesity, SOCS-3 might end up overriding the [leptin] signal completely.? When the amount of fat in...

Researchers design pulsed mircrojet system to deliver protein drugs without pain or bruising
