Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis Ppt

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a rare chronic, progressive encephalitis that affects primarily children and young adults, caused by a persistent infection of immune resistant measles virus (which can be a result of a mutation of the virus itself). No cure for SSPE exists, but the condition can be managed by medication if treatment is started at an early stage.

Diabetes Drug Improves Glucose Control Without Increasing Risk of Hypoglycemia

Diabetes Drug Improves Glucose Control Without Increasing Risk of Hypoglycemia

Too high? Too low? Only about half of those with type 2 diabetes have their blood sugar levels on target, but a new drug shows promise in managing glucose levels.  TAK-875 works by boosting the release of insulin from pancreatic B cells, but only when diabetics need it most – such as when glucose and fatty acids rise in the blood after a meal.

TAK-875, a new treatment for type 2 diabetes, improves blood sugar control and is equally effective as glimepiride, but has a significantly lower risk of creating a dangerous drop in blood sugar, called hypoglycemia, according to a new study.

Takeda Pharmaceutical has reported the positive results from its Phase 2 trial of TAK-875 in patients with type 2 diabetes.

TAK-875 is a selective agonist of GPR40, one of the GPCRs that are expressed in pancreatic islet cells.

The Phase 2 trial is a randomized double-blind placebo- and active (glimepiride) comparator-controlled multicenter study, intended to evaluate once-daily treatment with five different doses of TAK-875 (6.25 mg, 25 mg, 50 mg, 100 mg, and 200 mg) and glimepiride (2 mg -4 mg), over 12 weeks.

The study showed that at doses ranging from 6.25 to 200 mg a day, the drug has met its primary endpoint of significantly lowering HbA1c (blood glucose) levels.

The primary objective of the study is the change from baseline in HbA1c levels at week 12, while the secondary endpoints included fasting blood glucose, area under the curve (AUC) for glucose and insulin during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), and body weight.

Takeda Development therapeutic area head Thomas Strack said because of its observed ability to potently stimulate insulin secretion and improve glycemic control with less or no hypoglycemia, these data further support TAK-875 as a potential therapy for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

TAK-875 is the first GPR40 agonist to reach late-stage Phase 3 clinical development, the company said.
The results of the phase 2 randomized trial were published in The Lancet.

Fusion proteins Ppt

Fusion proteins or chimeric proteins are proteins created through the joining of two or more genes which originally coded for separate proteins. Translation of this fusion gene results in a single polypeptide with functional properties derived from each of the original proteins.

Stem cell-generated human eggs may help treat infertililty

Stem cells put women on fertile ground

    Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital say they have extracted stem cells from human ovaries and made them generate egg cells. The advance, if confirmed, might provide a new source of eggs for treating infertility, though scientists say it is far too early to tell if the work holds such promise.

    Women are born with a complement of egg cells that must last throughout life. The ability to isolate stem cells from which eggs could be cultivated would help not only with fertility but also with biologists’ understanding of how drugs and nutrition affect the egg cells.

    The new research, by a team led by the biologist Jonathan L Tilly, depends on a special protein found to mark the surface of reproductive cells like eggs and sperm. Using a cell-sorting machine that can separate out the marked cells, the team obtained reproductive cells from mouse ovaries and showed that the cells would generate viable egg cells that could be fertilized and produce embryos.

    They then applied the same method to human ovaries donated by women at the Saitama Medical Center in Japan who were undergoing sex reassignment because of a gender identity disorder. As with the mice, the team was able to retrieve reproductive cells that produced immature egg cells when grown in the laboratory. The egg cells, when injected into mice, generated follicles, the ovarian structure in which eggs are formed, as well as mature eggs, some of which had a single set of chromosomes, a signature of eggs and sperm.

    The results were published online Sunday by the journal Nature Medicine.  Tilly and colleagues wrote that their work opens up “a new field in human reproductive biology that was inconceivable less than 10 years ago”, and that access to the new cells will make possible novel forms of fertility preservation.

    David Albertini, an expert on female reproduction at the Kansas University Medical Center, called the report “a real technological tour de force”, but added that it was not yet clear whether the procedure yielded real egg cells that could be used in human fertility. “None of the criteria that we in the field use to establish that a cell is a high-quality oocyte are satisfied here,” he said, using the scientific term for an unfertilized egg. Tilly has long disputed the accepted belief that a woman makes no new egg cells after she is born.

Blood Test to measure love life

Oxitocin structure
Are you in a relationship and want to know how long it will last? Just check the level of oxytocin or the “love hormone” in your blood, scientists say.

    Researchers tested the oxytocin levels in the blood of 163 youth, 120 of whom had recently gotten into serious relationships. They found that new lovers had substantially higher levels of oxytocin, as compared to non-attached singles. The couples were tracked down six months later, and it was discovered that 36 couples were still together. Couples who stayed together showed higher oxytocin levels in the initial period of romance. These findings suggest that oxytocin levels in the first months of romantic love may serve as an index of a relationship's duration.
