treatment for two to four months can reverse the condition of Type-2 diabetes by up to 40 percent suggests a study The study appeared in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition where an individual does not produce enough insulin — the hormone that allows cells to absorb glucose in the blood — or the pancreas isn’t making insulin as efficiently as it could “By using a combination of oral medications insulin and lifestyle therapies to treat patients intensively for two to four months we found that up to 40 percent of participants were able to stay in remission for three months after stopping diabetes medications” said study’s first author Natalia McInnes from McMaster University and Hamilton Health Sciences in Ontario Canada “The findings support the notion that Type-2 diabetes can be reversed at least in the short term — not only with bariatric surgery but with medical approaches” McInnes added The team randomly divided 83 individuals into three study groups Two of the groups received an intensive metabolic intervention where they were provided with a personalised exercise plan and a suggested meal plan that reduced their daily calorie intake by 500 to 750 calories a day One group underwent the intervention for eight weeks while the other was treated intensively for 16 weeks After the intervention individuals in both groups stopped taking diabetes medications and were encouraged to continue with lifestyle changes The two intervention groups were compared to a control group of individuals with Type-2 diabetes The results indicated three months after the intervention was completed 11 out of 27 individuals in the 16-week intervention group met HbA1C criteria for complete or partial diabetes remission compared to four out of 28 individuals in the control group “The idea of reversing the disease is very appealing to individuals with diabetes It motivates them to make significant lifestyle changes and to achieve normal glucose levels with the help of medications This likely gives pancreas a rest and decreases fat stores in the body which in turn improves insulin production and effectiveness” McInnes explained

researcher warned that women who did not gain enough weight faced an increased risk of premature birth while those who put on too much were more likely to require a caesarean birth Researchers

pm Scientists have devised a new sodium-based battery that has the potential to store more energy while maintaining high safety and reliability levels (Image Source: Empa) Related News Scientists have devised a new sodium-based battery that has the potential to store more energy while maintaining high safety and reliability levels Researchers from Empa the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology and the University of Geneva (UNIGE) in Switzerland focused on the advantages of a “solid” battery: faster charging together with increased storage capacity and improved safety The battery prototype known as all-solid-state uses a solid instead of a liquid electrolyte that enables the use of a metal anode by blocking the formation of dendrites making it possible to store more energy while guaranteeing safety “But we still had to find a suitable solid ionic conductor that as well as being non-toxic was chemically and thermally stable and that would allow the sodium to move easily between the anode and the cathode” said Hans Hagemann from the UNIGE In the study published in the journal Energy and Environmental Science the researchers discovered that a boron-based substance a closo-borane enabled the sodium ions to circulate freely Since the closo-borane is an inorganic conductor it removes the risk of the battery catching fire while recharging It is a material in other words with numerous promising properties “The difficulty was establishing close contact between the battery’s three layers: the anode consisting of solid metallic sodium the cathode a mixed sodium chromium oxide and the electrolyte the closo-borane” said Leo Duchene from the UNIGE The researchers dissolved part of the battery electrolyte in a solvent before adding the sodium chromium oxide powder Once the solvent had evaporated they stacked the cathode powder composite with the electrolyte and anode compressing the various layers to form the battery “The electro-chemical stability of the electrolyte we are using here can withstand three volts whereas many solid electrolytes previously studied are damaged at the same voltage” said Arndt Remhof leader of the project The scientists also tested the battery over 250 charge and discharge cycles after which 85 per cent of the energy capacity was still functional “It needs 1200 cycles before the battery can be put on the market In addition we still have to test the battery at room temperature so we can confirm whether or not dendrites form while increasing the voltage even more” the researchers added For all the

“body-on-a-chip” and mimic how the human body responds to new medications (Image Source: Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine) Top News Scientists have created micro hearts lungs and livers that be combined to develop a “body-on-a-chip” and mimic how the human body responds to new medications Drug compounds are currently screened in the lab using human cells and then tested in animals However neither of the methods adequately replicates how drugs affect human organs “There is an urgent need for improved systems to accurately predict the effects of drugs chemicals and biological agents on the human body” said Anthony Atala from Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in the US Researchers developed micro-sized 3D organs known as organoids and connected them together on a single platform to monitor their function While other teams have combined cells from multiple organs in a similar system this is the first reported success using 3D organ structures known to be higher functioning and to more accurately model the human body The organ structures were made from cell types found in native human tissue using 3D printing and other methods Heart and livers were selected for the system because toxicity to these organs is a major reason for drug candidate failures and drug recalls Lungs are the point of entry for toxic particles and also for aerosol drugs such as asthma inhalers The organoids are placed in a sealed monitored system – complete with real-time camera A nutrient-filled liquid that circulates through the system keeps the organoids alive and is used to introduce potential drug therapies into the system The researchers first tested the organoids to ensure their similarity to human organs For example the micro-liver received a high dose of a common pain reliever – and then a different drug to counteract the toxic effects “The data shows a significant toxic response to the drug as well as mitigation by the treatment accurately reflecting the responses seen in human patients” said Aleksander Skardal assistant professor at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine However more important than how an individual organ responds to drugs is how the body as a whole responds In many cases during testing of new drug candidates – and sometimes even after the drugs have been approved for use – drugs have unexpected toxic effects in tissues not directly targeted by the drugs themselves “If you screen a drug in livers only for example you’re never going to see a potential side effect to other organs” said Skardal “By using a multi-tissue organ-on-a-chip system you can hopefully identify toxic side effects early in the drug development process which could save lives as well as millions of dollars” he said The scientists conducted multiple scenarios to ensure that the body-on-a-chip system mimics a multi-organ response For example they introduced a drug used to treat cancer into the system Known to cause scarring of the lungs the drug also unexpectedly affected the system’s heart However a control experiment using only the heart showed no response “This was completely unexpected but it’s the type of side effect that can be discovered with this system in the drug development pipeline” Skardal said For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Agencies | Washington |

thinking about how rejected you feel when you look at the picture of a person that you recently experienced an unwanted break-up with may seem to elicit very different types of pain “But this research
