A new molecule to fight type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

A new molecule -EPB-53-, could help fight type 2 diabetes and the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. According to a new study, the EPB-53 molecule increases levels of the FGF21 hormone, a biological factor playing a determining role in the control of diabetes and obesity.

A new molecule -EPB-53-, could help fight type 2 diabetes and the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, according to a new study led by the team of Manuel Vázquez-Carrera, from the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences and the Institute of Biomedicine of the University of Barcelona (IBUB), and the Diabetes and Associated Metabolic Diseases Networking Biomedical Research Centre (CIBERDEM).

Other participants in the study, published in the journal British Journal of Pharmacology, are the members of the teams led by the researchers Francesc Villarroya, from the Faculty of Biology and the Institute of Biomedicine of the University of Barcelona (IBUB) and member of the Physiopathology of Obesity and Nutrition Networking Biomedical Research Centre (CIBERobn) and the Research Institute Sant Joan de Déu; and Santiago Vázquez, from the Pharmaceutical Chemistry Unit of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences of the UB and IBUB.
