Regulating AMPK could stop cancer cachexia

Post by whbio » Wed Aug 31, 2016 3:29 am

Cachexia is a syndrome characterized by symptoms of unintentional weight loss, progressive muscle wasting, and a loss of appetite. Cancer patients often suffer from this condition. Moreover, cachexia is responsible for at least 20 percent of cancer deaths. Healthy fat tissue is extremely important for the survival of patients with cancer cachexia.

Recently, scientists found a promising approach of preventing this dangerous condition. They found that regulating a specific enzyme called AMPK could stop harmful metabolic processes and preserve fat tissue in the body. More details, refer to http://about.cusabio.com/c-19777.html
