This discovery, the first in the Published in February, issue of Genes & Development, reveals that the transport of ketone bodies from the liver is an important step in energy metabolism during fasting. It also provides a new approach for investigating the development of fatty liver disease in humans.. In the liver, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: Gene mutation linked to the accumulation of fat, other lipids in the liverA team of scientists from the University of Utah and the University of California at San Francisco has discovered that the mutation of a gene encoding ketone bodies transporters solves accumulation of fat and other lipids in liver of zebrafish.

‘.. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or abnormally high accumulation of lipids in the liver, the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. Lipids are a diverse group of molecules which comprise fats, triglycerides and cholesterol. In some people, leads NAFLD no complications, but can in others, excess fat in the liver, and and the development of scar tissue, million U.S. Permanent liver damage or even liver failure. NAFLD is also reduce the risk of heart disease in overweight or obese overweight or obese. The increasing prevalence of NAFLD in the United States is, in large part on the obesity epidemic, and it is estimated that more than 6 million U.S.‘. Reducing the demand a priority of, guaranteeing a complete and balanced approach to the global drugs problem, that abuse a social and health problem that one cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary approach requires, know is ‘said Alvaro Briones, Director of of Policies and program at OAS Office to multidimensional Security.

These differing these different effect, must policy on drugs not only deal of drugs, but to provide demand and reducing the risk zone, analysts said today organize during a panel discussion of Pan American Health Organization / World Health Organization and the Inter- – American DrugAbuse Control Commission highlight the Organization of American States , of the International day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. – ‘Even though substance disorders in the developed world in the developed countries of the Americas, the health burden of such a diseases, especially with regard to disability-adjusted life years, disproportionately high the low and middle incomes,’said PAHO Deputy Director Dr.
