Understanding the role of adiponectin in kidney disease development at a population level

Reduced circulating adiponectin levels are associated with poor outcome in patients with diabetic kidney disease (DKD) (1). Adiponectin has been shown to be protective against the development of DKD in Type 2 diabetic models (2, 3, 4). Read more

Trusted AI for Diabetes personalised self-management systems

Diabetes mellitus is a common cause of morbidity and mortality across the globe. Type 2 diabetes continues to rise in prevalence annually; from 1980 to 2004, Type 2 quadrupled in both prevalence and incidence [1]. This will be exacerbated further by the increase in obesity. Read more

Cellular protein quality control in diabetes-associated heart disease: The insight into mechanisms and therapeutic potentials

Cardiovascular complications are the leading causes of diabetes mortality. With the exception of vascular and valvular injuries, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a distinct myocardial disease, which is characterised by abnormal cellular metabolism and defects in organelles function, leading to impaired cardiac function.

Interdisciplinary investigation of a large effect of sulfasalazine on HbA1c

The anti-inflammatory drug sulfasalazine, which is used in rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, was reported earlier to suppress HbA1c in a small cohort of patients [1]. Read more

Interdisciplinary investigation of the role of amino acids in immunometabolic responses to metformin in human cells

There is overwhelming evidence that inflammation contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) but counterbalancing this is evidence from meta-analysis of randomised control trials that many existing anti-inflammatory drugs, such as COX2 inhibitors and anti-TNF drugs, tend if anything to exacerbate risk of CVD.

Investigation of aortic remodelling in obesity and role of mitochondrial dysfunction

Obesity is a global healthcare and economic burden with currently more than 650 million adults classified as obese (WHO, 2017). Obesity is a common precursor to type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and both are risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease. Read more
