Prebiotics in infant formula may boost learning, memory 18.1.2018 General News
Adding prebiotics to infant formula can help enhance memory and exploratory behaviour in babies, scientists have found. New mothers are always encouraged to offer breast milk to newborns. Among other things, breast milk contains natural sources of prebiotics: small, indigestible fibre molecules that promote the growth of good bacteria in the baby's gut. Yet for many families, breastfeeding is difficult or impossible. "When we provide prebiotics in formula, our results confirm that we can not only benefit gut health, which is known, but we can also influence brain development," said Ryan Dilger, associate professor at University of Illinois in the US. "We can actually change the way piglets learn and remember by influencing bacteria in the colon," said Dilger. Piglets are widely considered a more informative model for human infants than mice and rats; their digestive systems, behavioural responses, and brain development are remarkably similar to human infants. Therefore, .

Secret of longevity protein revealed! 18.1.2018 General News
A team of researchers has discovered an anti-ageing protein, named after a Greek goddess, which may play an important role in the treatment of multiple diseases ranging from diabetes to cancers.The findings indicated that the three-dimensional structure of one of the so-called Klotho proteins has a big role in the regulation of longevity and metabolism.The Klotho family of two receptor proteins is located on the surface of cells of specific tissues.The proteins bind to a family of hormones, designated endocrine Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGFs) that regulate critical metabolic processes in the liver, kidneys and brain, among other organs.The researchers from Yale University used X-ray crystallography, a technique that provides high-resolution, three-dimensional views of these proteins.They revealed, first, beta-Klotho is the primary receptor that binds to FGF21, a key hormone produced upon starvation.When bound to beta-Klotho, FGF21 stimulates insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism,

Secrets of longevity protein revealed 18.1.2018 General News
Scientists have unveiled the 3D structure of a protein linked to longer lives, paving the way for new therapies to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including diabetes, obesity and certain cancers. Named after the Greek goddess who spun the thread of life, Klotho proteins play an important role in the regulation of longevity and metabolism. Researchers from Yale University in the US revealed the three-dimensional structure of one of these proteins, beta- Klotho, illuminating its intricate mechanism and therapeutic potential. The Klotho family of two receptor proteins are located on the surface of cells of specific tissues. The proteins bind to a family of hormones, designated endocrine FGFs, that regulate critical metabolic processes in the liver, kidneys, and brain, among other organs. To understand how beta-Klotho works, the research team used X-ray crystallography, a technique that provides high- resolution, 3D views of these proteins. The researchers' analysis

Drug price regulator NPPA today said it has fixed the retail price for 30 drug formulations, including those used for treatment of diabetes, bacterial infections and high blood pressure. The National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) has also revised the prices of three formulations, including that of anti cancer drug -- Gemcitabine. "NPPA has fixed/revised ceiling prices/retail prices of 33 formulations under Drugs (Prices Control) Order, 2013," NPPA said in a notification. The NPPA is mandated to fix/revise the prices of controlled bulk drugs and formulations and to enforce prices and availability of the medicines in the country. It also monitors the prices of decontrolled drugs in order to keep them at reasonable levels. The regulator implements and enforces the provisions of the Drugs (Prices Control) Order. It is also entrusted with the task of recovering amounts overcharged by manufacturers for the controlled drugs from the consumers.

Breastfeeding for over 6 months may cut diabetes risk by half 17.1.2018 General News
Breastfeeding for six months or longer cuts the risk of developing type 2 diabetes nearly in half for women throughout their childbearing years, a study has found. Women who breastfed for six months or more across all births had a 47 per cent reduction in their risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to those who did not breastfeed at all. Women who breastfed for six months or less had a 25 per cent reduction in diabetes risk, according to the study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. "We found a very strong association between breastfeeding duration and lower risk of developing diabetes, even after accounting for all possible confounding risk factors," said Erica P Gunderson, senior research scientist with the Kaiser Permanente, a health care company in the US. Researchers analysed data during the 30 years of follow up from the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study, an centre investigation of cardiovascular disease risk ...
