How fasting helps fight fatty liver disease

How fasting helps fight fatty liver disease

Jointly with colleagues from Helmholtz Zentrum München, scientists at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg have new information on what happens at the molecular level when we go hungry. In cooperation with the German Center for Diabetes Research they were able to show that upon deprivation of food a certain protein is produced that adjusts the metabolism in the liver.

Founding of an International Cancer Genome Consortium for medicine: Scientists combine data from cancer genome with information on disease progression

Founding of an International Cancer Genome Consortium for medicine: Scientists combine data from cancer genome with information on disease progression

During the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting, members of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) announced their entering of a new phase: The ICGCmed now combine data from cancer genome with information on disease progression. The objective of this initiative is to make optimal use of the consolidated information for prevention, early detection, diagnostics, prognosis and tailor-made cancer therapies.

Endogenous oxidants: New methods for monitoring processes in the organism

Endogenous oxidants: New methods for monitoring processes in the organism

Diet, physical activity, infection, cancer, and possibly aging are all factors that can have an impact on the oxidation state of cells and tissues. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) have now developed two novel biological measuring systems that facilitate better analysis of disease-relevant changes in the oxidation state of cells. One of the methods can be used, for the first time, to observe variations and changes in cellular oxidation states in tissue sections. The other is a newly developed biosensor that is a sensitive enough to facilitate real-time measurements of subtle oxidative changes in metabolism.
