Higher Yogurt Intake is Associated with Lower Cardiovascular Disease Risk

In this study, researchers recommend that higher yogurt intake is associated with lower cardiovascular disease risk among hypertensive men and women. High blood pressure is a major cardiovascular disease risk factor. Clinical trials have previously demonstrated beneficial effects of dairy consumption on cardiovascular health. Yogurt may independently be related to cardiovascular disease risk. The study published in the American Journal of Hypertension.

Development of Sequencing Pipeline to Personalize Lymphoma Management

Hybrid-capture sequencing is the method of choice for sequencing actionable gene mutations across the most common forms of lymphoid cancer, according to a new study published in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics. It reliably identifies potentially actionable gene mutations in 91% of patients. This assay will bring the benefits of precision diagnosis and individualized therapy to patients with lymphoid cancer.

Improvement in Glucose and Insulin Tolerance and Reduced Body Weight

A study shows that obese mice is been treated with catestatin (CST), a peptide naturally occurring in the body, showed significant improvement in glucose and insulin tolerance and reduced body weight. Researchers identified CST's role in the recruitment and function of macrophages in the liver as well as regulation of obesity-induced liver inflammation and insulin resistance. The study published in Diabetes.
