Abstract

The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (obesity, glucose intolerance, low serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol [HDL-C], high serum triglycerides, hypertension) is high and increasing in parallel with an increasing breast cancer incidence worldwide. HDL-C represents an important aspe...read more

Hormone-Related Cancers

This feed focuses on hormone-related cancers including cancer of the breast, endometrium, ovary, prostate, testis, thyroid, and bone, all of which share unique mechanisms of carcinogenesis. Here is the latest research.

Obesity & CV Disease

Obesity is becoming a major health concern and epidemic worldwide. It is regarded as a systemic, low-grade inflammatory state and has been linked to several diseases, one of major importance is cardiovascular diseases. Here is the latest research on obesity and cardiovascular diseases.

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. It significantly increases the risk for cardiovascular and disease and type 2 diabetes. Increasing prevalence has been associated with the increasing rates of obesity worldwide. Here is the latest research on the metabolic syndrome.

Lipid & Membrane Metabolism

Lipid metabolism refers to the synthesis and degradation of lipids in cells and is a complex process essential for fat storage and construction of cellular membranes. Discover the latest research on lipid and membrane metabolism here.

Cholesterol Synthesis & Signaling

Cholesterol is essential for a variety of cellular processes, including cell growth and division, and it plays an important role in various signaling pathways. Here is the latest research on cholesterol synthesis and the role of cholesterol in cell signaling.

Lipid Metabolism

Lipid metabolism is important in several cellular processes and functions including signal transduction. Disorders of lipid metabolism can occur impairing normal function. Here is the latest research on lipid metabolism and lipid disorders.

Metabolic Syndrome & Cardiovascular Disease

The constellation of dyslipidemia (hypertriglyceridemia and low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol), elevated blood pressure, impaired glucose tolerance, and central obesity is now classified as metabolic syndrome, also called syndrome X. It is considered to be a precursor of cardiovascular disease. Discover the latest research on metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease here.

Prediabetes & Vascular Complications

Patients with prediabetes syndrome have abnormally high blood glucose levels, thereby increasing the risk of developing diabetes and vascular complications. Discover the latest research here.

Lipids & Membrane Homeostasis

The cellular membrane is composed of diverse lipid molecules that help maintain membrane integrity and homeostasis. Discover the latest research on Lipids & Membrane Homeostasis
