Adipokines and Adipose Tissue-Liver Crosstalk in Energy Metabolism

Research over the past several decades examining adipokines and adipose tissue-liver crosstalk in energy metabolism has revealed that adipose tissue is a very important metabolically active endocrine organ1. White, brown, and beige adipose tissue generate and secrete adipokines, such as adiponectin and leptin, which facilitate adipose tissue-liver crosstalk and insulin sensitivity1. https://...

Leveraging Non-Invasive Approaches in NAFLD and NASH Diagnosis and Clinical Research

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) / nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is anticipated to become the next major health epidemic. NAFLD is a chronic disease ranging from fatty liver to NASH to advanced end stage liver failure. Currently, liver biopsy is the gold standard for clinical diagnosis of NASH and monitoring treatment response, but has several disadvantages. Therefore, alternative...

The Role of Bile Acids in Inflammation

Presented by: Evelyn Zöhrer, PhD; Medical University of Graz Bile acids act as emulsifiers and promote the absorption of lipids. In addition to the facilitation of digestion, bile acids are now being recognized as key players in the regulation of a myriad of metabolic processes. As such, the role of bile acids continues to be investigated in the context of health problems such as inflammator...

Toxicology

Drug-Induced Organ Injury Toxicological side effects are a common obstacle in drug development pipelines and often manifest in site-specific damage to vital organs, including the liver, kidney and heart. Estimates of compound attrition from failure to meet safety endpoints are as high as 45% in preclinical models and 40% for Phase I clinical trials.1 Now more than ever, labs engaged in comp...
