UCLA Scientists Make Embryonic Stem Cells From Adult Stem Cells – Could Treat Parkinson’s Diabetes Leukemia And Other Diseases

Kathrin Plath

(Best Syndication) Scientists at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) say that normal tissue cells can be reprogrammed to become cells with the same unlimited properties as embryonic stem cells. The implications of this research for the treatment of disease could be “staggering”.

By programming adult stem cells into becoming embryonic stem cells, scientists could generate a potentially limitless source of immune-compatible cells for tissue engineering and transplantation medicine. The embryonic stem cells could then be prodded into becoming various cell types. These cells could treat many diseases.

Avandia Diabetes Drug Raises Concerns – Heart Attack Death Risk Increase According to Studies – Glaxo Smith-Kline Says Evidence

Avandia Diabetes Drug Raises Concerns – Heart Attack Death Risk Increase According to Studies – Glaxo Smith-Kline Says Evidence

Steven Nissen

(Best Syndication) Researchers in Ohio say that the common type-2 diabetes drug Avandia (rosiglitazone) increases the chance of heart attack and cardiovascular death. The maker of the drug, Glaxo Smith-Kline disputes the findings that were published in Monday’s New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).

The company said in a statement that “GSK strongly disagrees with the conclusions reached in the NEJM article, which are based on incomplete evidence and a methodology that the author admits has significant limitations.” Even the journal admits to some weaknesses in the study, and conceded that the side effects could have been caused by chance.

But some worry that this could be a repeat of the Vioxx disaster. In an article by Steve Sternberg of USA Today, the research raises those concerns. “Avandia may become the latest of a series of disgraced blockbusters whose risks have been found to outweigh their benefits,” Sternberg writes. “Baby boomers still are reeling from the loss of Vioxx.”

[Best Syndication] A study showed that if a person ate a high fiber diet regularly from grains and cereals along with magnesium, they showed a lower risk for developing type 2 diabetes. The study was first reported in the May 14th issue of Archives of Internal Medicine.

Type 2 diabetes is been on record breaking numbers. In 2000, there were 171 million cases worldwide that have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Because of the ongoing obesity epidemic, projections for the 2030 estimate that there will be 370 million people suffering this condition in the world.

Dietary fiber has a number of proven health benefits, and the researchers believe that people won’t develop type 2 diabetes, because they are absorbing more nutrients and also reducing blood sugar spikes after a meal.

[Best Syndication ] Infant formula and baby food could have a new ingredient that will tame their appetites reports Lisa Melton in Chemistry & Industry magazine. The new baby foods could be on store shelves soon, as Clore Laboratory at the University of Buckingham are developing foods for infants that is fortified with leptin hormone.

Leptin is a fat hormone that controls hunger. The researchers believe that those who take leptin hormone early in life will never get fat and will remain slim despite eating those extra calories. You know those people that can eat and eat and never gain a pound.

Mike Cawthorne who is the head of the Metabolic Research group at Clore has already shown that supplementing infant rats with leptin protected them from ever getting fat or developing diabetes. They even showed that rats that were fed leptin and were fed a high-fat diet remained slender.
