                   Researchers have discovered a protein that is crucial to enabling the spread of breast cancer to healthy tissues

    Researchers have uncovered the mechanism by which a protein facilitates the spread of breast cancer cells from the primary tumor into healthy tissue. The discovery not only improves our understanding of the metastatic process but is the first step to developing treatments that target this mechanism.

   Cancer’s ability to spread or metastasize from the primary tumor to invade healthy tissue is one of its most lethal features. In almost 30% of women with early-stage breast cancer, the cancer metastasizes, most commonly to the bones.

Scientists have demonstrated how implanting cells from the pancreas into the eye can help treat diabetes

   Diabetes is one of the most pressing health concerns of our time, and now Swedish scientists have demonstrated a new potential way to manage the disease. It turns out the eye might be a useful place to implant insulin-producing cells to control blood sugar levels.

   In patients with type 1 diabetes, the immune system mistakenly attacks the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, leaving the body unable to regulate blood sugar levels and leading to a host of health problems.

Testul vocal de 10 secunde a demonstrat că detectează diabetul de tip 2

                                 A new study suggests that type 2 diabetes causes a person's voice to change in a subtle but consistent manner

  Currently, if someone wants to see if they have type 2 diabetes, they have to travel to a clinic for blood tests and then wait for results. According to a recent study, however, a 10-second smartphone voice recording may soon deliver on-the-spot results immediately.

   The study was conducted by scientists from international biotech firm Klick Labs, and involved 267 test subjects who had already been diagnosed as being either non-diabetic (192 people) or type 2 diabetic (75 people).

S-a descoperit mecanismul genetic care leagă zincul de diabet și boli hepatice PDF Imprimare

                            A study has uncovered the genetic mechanism that underlies the protective role of zinc in diabetes
       For the first time, researchers have identified the genetic mechanism underlying the protective role zinc has for type 2 diabetes and the fatty liver disease associated with the condition. The findings advance our understanding of metabolism and open the door to developing a novel diabetes treatment.
      Zinc helps with immune function, cell growth and division, DNA synthesis, and metabolism. Given its importance, our bodies have evolved mechanisms to maintain zinc levels. One such mechanism involves the Solute Carrier Family 39, Member 5 (SLC39A5) gene, which encodes a protein belonging to the family of zinc transporters that transport zinc into cells.

                      Dogs are particularly good at detecting disease with their keen sense of smell

     It’s been estimated that dogs smell up to 10,000 times better than us. That’s in part because they have about 220 million scent receptors, whereas humans have a mere 5 million. But dogs also inhale in short breaths up to 300 times a minute, meaning that their olfactory cells are constantly picking up new scents. It’s these factors that make them effective – and adorable – real-time disease detectors.
     When we’re sick, we produce compounds that waft around us. In infectious or disease states, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted in breath, blood, sweat and urine, creating a volatilome or ‘aura’ of molecules around the human body. These VOCs often result in changes in body odor, which, studies have found, are detectable by dogs. But what conditions are dogs able to detect?

    Here are eight diseases that our furry friends are particularly good at sniffing out.
