Plasma CTSD activity: a non-invasive biomarker for hepatic insulin sensitivity

type 2 diabetes. AoS

Due to the obesity epidemic, the incidence and prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus continues to rise globally. Type 2 diabetes is characterised by a relative insulin deficiency and an impaired insulin sensitivity in certain specific target organs. Insulin sensitivity can

Oxidative stress sensitivity of cancer cells could be altered by plasma membrane status

Oxidative stress is defined as “A status that the balance between the oxidation reaction and the antioxidant reaction is lost in our body, and that the oxidation state is dominant.” Oxidative stress is generally adverse for our

Plantar insensitivity and reduced cutaneous reflex strength: potential risk factors for balance impairment?

Sensory input arising from skin receptors of the foot sole provides important information for controlling standing balance: a finding demonstrated by blocking the neural activity of skin receptors in young adults. As we age, our skin receptors
