Targeting fat-tissue hormone may lead to type 2 diabetes treatment

By on

first_imgA new study by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and colleagues describes the pre-clinical development of a therapeutic that could potentially be used to treat type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and other metabolic diseases. The researchers developed an antibody that improves glucose regulation and reduces fatty liver in obese mice by targeting a hormone in adipose (fat) tissue called aP2 (also known as FABP4).The study was published online December 23, 2015 in Science Translational Medicine.“The importance of this study is two-fold: first, demonstrating the importance of aP2 as a critical hormone in abnormal glucose metabolism, and secondly, showing that aP2 can be effectively targeted to treat diabetes and potentially other immunometabolic diseases,” said Gökhan S. Hotamisligil, J.S. Simmons Professor of Genetics and Metabolism and chair of the Department of Genetics and Complex Diseases and the Sabri Ülker Center at Harvard Chan School.The work is the product of a collaboration on immunometabolism between the biopharmaceutical company UCB and a team of researchers led by Hotamisligil and lead author M. Furkan Burak, a former Hotamisligil lab member and currently a resident in internal medicine at Mount Auburn Hospital, Cambridge, Mass. This partnership successfully twins UCB’s world-class expertise in monoclonal antibody discovery with Hotamisligil’s insight and experience in aP2 biology. Read Full Storylast_img read more

Saint Mary’s students participate in Belles Beginnings

By on January 26, 2021

first_imgThe Saint Mary’s class of 2020 will participate in the annual Belles Beginnings orientation program this weekend, as the incoming students will engage in bonding opportunities, listen to speeches on campus safety and foster open discussions with peer mentors.Student body president Emma McCarthy said she hopes first-year and transfer students embrace the social aspect of Belles Beginnings and acquaint themselves with classmates.“The single most important part of orientation is that our first-year students feel that they are a part of our campus community,” McCarthy said. “Whether it be through their first introductions with their roommates, getting to know the other women in their residence halls or meeting their peer mentor groups, there will be no shortage of opportunities for the class of 2020 to get to know each other and begin to build community.”According to McCarthy, Belles Beginnings prepares students to take on the challenges of the upcoming academic year in a new environment.“[New students] are about to begin the most amazing journey of their lives, and I hope they know that the Saint Mary’s community is here to help them every step of the way,” McCarthy said. “There will be hard days, but my hope is that the amazing days, the days that remind them why they chose to be a Belle, will far outnumber the hard ones.”McCarthy said Belles Beginnings will help students feel connected to their new home at Saint Mary’s.“My biggest hope for [new students] is that they know how much their fellow Belles love them and how excited we all are that they are here,” McCarthy said. “I hope first-year students learn that they have been given all of the tools that they need to have a successful first year at Saint Mary’s. Now it is their turn to use their gifts and abilities to make their Saint Mary’s experience what they want it to be.”Student body vice president Mary Joy Dingler said orientation weekend will help students grow in appreciation for the Saint Mary’s community.“I hope the new students learn that they can always count on their fellow Belles and that they really will be okay during their first year at Saint Mary’s,” Dingler said. “Saint Mary’s is such an amazing place, and it fosters such an amazing community and sisterhood.”Belles Beginnings will prepare students for the transformative college experience that lies ahead, according to Dingler.“College is a time to explore and discover more about yourself, and I hope when they take that last walk down the Avenue in 2020 that they’ve grown, learned, loved and most importantly, that they are happy with who they’ve become,” Dingler said. “First years and transfers alike should be welcomed by Saint Mary’s and welcome it back with open arms.”McCarthy said incoming students should become involved in clubs, sports or other extracurricular activities to take advantage of all Saint Mary’s has to offer.“If [students] do not want to stay at Saint Mary’s, then they will not fully engage in the campus community, which is a tragedy for both themselves and the College,” McCarthy said. “We want these women to stay with us throughout their college experience, so welcoming them is our utmost priority.”Dingler said students will feel embraced by a supportive community the second they set foot on campus, so Belles Beginnings will merely strengthen their initial impression of the College.“I hope as [students] move in and get to know the campus, they’ll realize that they have made one of the best decisions of their lives,” Dingler said. “Once a Belle, always a Belle.”Tags: Belles Beginnings, Class of 2020, Freshman Orientation 2016, Saint Mary’s Collegelast_img read more

National Food Safety Policy on the cards for Dominica

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! 46 Views   no discussions Tweetcenter_img Share LocalNews National Food Safety Policy on the cards for Dominica by: – November 29, 2011 Image via: zunia.orgDominica is seeking to rationalize several agencies into a single National Food Safety System.Chief Environmental Health Officer Anthony Scotland says because the country’s food safety program is being managed by various entities, it promotes poor coordination of activities within the sector.He says a workshop sponsored by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) which will commence here this morning is seeking to implement a National Food Safety Policy in Dominica.“Dominica food safety programme is managed by a number of entities and agencies across the ministries of health, agriculture, trade, and finance and private sector companies. This fragmented approach promoted poor coordination of activities. No one ministry or agency has the overall responsibility to manage food safety. Thus has resulted in unnecessary duplication of effort and facilities. The main aim of our policy is to rationalize these agencies into one single integrated national food safety system.” Three government ministries, namely health, trade and agriculture are presently utilizing a team approach to initiate the process,” Scotland said.The workshop is aimed at developing a mechanism for inter-sectoral collaboration among government and non-governmental organizations, to define the role of stakeholders in the National Food Safety System and draft a situational analysis documented.It will commence from 9am at the Fort Young Hotel.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

By on September 24, 2020

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) will offer health trainings, birth certificates, educational games and other activities at the Indiana State Fair on Monday, Aug. 13, as part of First Responders Day presented by ISDH. On that day, first responders, including firefighters, police officers and EMT personnel, and their families will receive free admission when an ID or badge is presented at the gate.“First responders are on the front lines of keeping Hoosiers safe and healthy, whether they’re fighting the opioid crisis, making sure homes have working smoke detectors or providing emergency medical care,” said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “We’re proud to partner with the Indiana State Fair to honor these men and women.”ISDH staff will be on hand to provide information and interactive demonstrations to promote good health in Indiana.As part of the ISDH activities, fairgoers will be able to enter a drawing to win a mini Colts helmet signed by Anthony Castonzo, play cornhole and other games, check whether their child is tall enough to transition from a car seat to a booster seat, see demonstrations of the new Liv pregnancy mobile application and get their picture taken in the Liv photo booth.The ISDH Emergency Preparedness Mobile Hospital also will be on display. Besides getting some relief from the heat in this air-conditioned tent, fairgoers will be able to purchase copies of birth or death certificates from the ISDH Vital Records Division. Individuals should bring a driver’s license or other photo identification and a check for $10 to obtain a certificate on the spot. Parents will also be able to register their child’s immunization record with MyVaxIndiana.The mobile hospital tent will also host trainings for both first responders and fairgoers. First responders who would like to earn continuing education credits can attend a naloxone administration training.

This 15-minute training teaches individuals how to quickly stop blood loss. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene of a traumatic event. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, so it is important to quickly stop the bleeding.ISDH, along with first responders and other partners, works daily to protect Hoosiers from disease and educate them about ways to improve their health.
