Plasmolipin and Its Role in Cell Processes
27-11-2021The mechanisms involved in the origin and development of malignant and neurodegenerative diseases are an important area of modern biomedicine. A crucial task is to identify new molecular markers that are associated with rearrangements of intracellular signaling and can be used for prognosis and the development of effective treatment approaches. The proteolipid plasmolipin (PLLP) is a possible marker. PLLP is a main component of the myelin sheath and plays an important role in the development and...

Roselle for hypertension in adults
27-11-2021BACKGROUND: Hypertension is considered to be a serious health problem worldwide. Controlling and lowering blood pressure are of significant benefit to people with hypertension because hypertension is a risk factor for stroke, heart disease, and cardiovascular disease. Roselle, the tropical plant Hibiscus sabdariffa, also commonly called sour tea or red tea, has been used as both a thirst-quenching drink and for medicinal purposes.

Predictive model and risk analysis for diabetic retinopathy using machine learning: a retrospective cohort study in China
27-11-2021CONCLUSIONS: With better comprehensive performance, XGBoost model had high reliability to assess risk indicators of DR. The most critical risk factors of DR and the cut-off of risk factors can be found by SHAP method to render the output of the XGBoost model clinically interpretable.

Genotoxic and cytotoxic assessment of sitagliptin and simvastatin alone and in combination
27-11-2021Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) patients are at high risk of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) and need a global therapeutic intervention. A fixed-dose combination prescription medication containing anti-diabetic drug (Sitagliptin) and lipid lowering (Simvastatin) has recently been approved. Present study was designed to explore the potential synergistic toxic effects of sitagliptin and simvastatin at cellular level. MTT assay revealed the potential synergistic cytotoxic effect whereas Comet assay...

Synthesis and α-glucosidase inhibition studies of norfloxacin-acetanilide hybrids
27-11-2021α-Glucosidase inhibitors occupy a prominent position among the various treatments of type-2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). In this study, a series of new norfloxacin-acetanilide hybrid molecules were synthesized and screened for α-glucosidase inhibition activity. The synthetic methodology involves the synthesis of a series of α-bromoacetanilides by condensing bromoacetyl bromide with various substituted anilines. These α-bromoacetanilides were coupled with norfloxacin in DMF to get the titled hybrids....
