Scientists reveal the relationship between sugar and cancer

A nine-year joint research project conducted by VIB, KU Leuven and VUB has led to a crucial breakthrough in cancer research. Scientists have clarified how the Warburg effect, a phenomenon in which cancer cells rapidly break down sugars, stimulates tumor growth. This discovery provides evidence for a positive correlation between sugar and cancer, which may […]

Effect of carbohydrate rich versus fat rich loads on gas exchange and walking performance in patients with chronic obstructive lung disease.

High calorie intakes, especially as carbohydrate, increase carbon dioxide production (VCO2) and may precipitate respiratory failure in patients with severe pulmonary disease. Energy obtained from fat results in less carbon dioxide and thus may permit a reduced level of alveolar ventilation for any given arterial blood carbon dioxide tension (PaCO2).  Ten patients with stable severe […]

Hypoascorbemia induces atherosclerosis and vascular deposition of lipoprotein(a)

Lipoprotein(a), a variant of LDL carrying the adhesive glycoprotein apo(a), is a leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) is found in humans and subhuman primates but rarely in lower mammals. Better understanding of the evolutionary advantage of this molecule should elucidate its physiological role. We developed a new mouse model with two characteristics […]

Prolonged Fasting Increases Cell Regeneration and Reverse Immunosuppression

Immune system defects are at the center of aging and a range of diseases. Here, we show that prolonged fasting reduces circulating IGF-1 levels and PKA activity in various cell populations, leading to signal transduction changes in long-term hematopoietic stem cells (LT-HSCs) and niche cells that promote stress resistance, self-renewal, and lineage-balanced regeneration. Multiple cycles […]

Fasting Regenerates Your Entire Immune System

Prolonged fasting downregulates a IGF-1/PKA pathway in stem Prolong fasting protects hematopoietic cells from chemotoxicity Prolonged fasting cycles promote HSC self-renewal to reverse immunosuppression Inhibition of IGF-1 or PKA signaling mimics the effects of prolonged Immune system defects are at the center of aging and a range of diseases. Here, we show that prolonged fasting […]
