Obesity-induced p53 activation in insulin-dependent and independent tissues is inhibited by beta-adrenergic agonist in diet-induced obese rats
Sun, 07 Feb 2016 00:00:00 +0100 | Life Sciences
Publication date: 15 February 2016 Source:Life Sciences, Volume 147 Author(s): Hamid Zand, Reza Homayounfar, Makan Cheraghpour, Mahmood Jeddi-Tehrani, Arman Ghorbani, Katayoun Pourvali, Sama Reza Soltani Aims The purpose of this study was to assay the role of beta-adrenergic receptor signaling in the regulation of obesity-induced p53 in high fat feeding obese rats. Main methods The role of beta-adrenergic receptor/cyclic AMP in the regulation of p53 and its downstream mediators was evaluated by western blot and real-time quantitative RT-PCR among diet induced rats. Key findings Beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, isoproterenol, and an adenylate cyclase activator, forskolin, at a single dose significantly reduced insulin resistance consistent with a decrease in total and phospho-p5...

Commentary: Persistence and Health-Related Consequences of the Model Minority Stereotype for Asian Americans.
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 04:30:03 +0100 | Ethnicity and Disease
The objectives of this article are to define the model minority stereotype, present its controversies, and provide examples of its social and health-related consequences (ie, implications for obesity and tobacco) across multiple levels of society and institutions. A salient theme throughout the examples provided is the limitation of data presented at the aggregate level across all Asian subgroups which masks meaningful disparities. The intent is to increase the visibility of Asian Americans as a racial/ethnic minority group experiencing chronic disease health disparities and deserving of health-related resources and consideration.

Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome and its Related Risk Factors in the City of Oran, Algeria: the ISOR Study.
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 04:30:03 +0100 | Ethnicity and Disease
CONCLUSIONS: Metabolic syndrome, prevalent in the urban population of North Algeria, is associated with a high proportion of low HDL-cholesterol and abdominal obesity, especially among women. There is a need for prevention strategies involving promotion of physical activity for the whole population and screening for hypertension among men.

Higher Motivation for Weight Loss in African American than Caucasian Rural Patients with Hypertension and/or Diabetes.
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 04:30:03 +0100 | Ethnicity and Disease
CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that, among rural patients with obesity-related chronic disease, there is a significant variation in motivation to lose weight between racial/ethnic groups. This underscores the importance of culturally tailoring interventions and in considering motivation for change when promoting weight loss behaviors. Additional implications for intervention development and delivery are discussed.

Race-specific Association of Caesarean-Section Delivery with Body Size at Age 2 Years.
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 04:30:03 +0100 | Ethnicity and Disease
CONCLUSIONS: There is evidence for a race-specific effect of CS on obesity at age 2 years; potential underlying mechanisms may be racial differences in the developing gut microbiome or in epigenetic programming. Future research is needed to determine if this racial difference persists into later childhood.

Associations of Sarcopenia and Sarcopenic Obesity With Metabolic Syndrome Considering Both Muscle Mass and Muscle Strength.
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 04:26:05 +0100 | Journal of Preventive Medicine and Public Health
CONCLUSIONS: The associations of sarcopenia defined in terms of muscle mass and sarcopenic obesity with metabolic syndrome were statistically significant in both men and women. Therefore, sarcopenia and sarcopenic obesity must be considered as part of the community-based management of non-communicable diseases.
