Editor’s Choice – “Banana as Edible Vaccine Asgainst Hepatitis-B: A Theoretical Model”

Journal: Immunology, Endocrine & Metabolic Agents in Medicinal Chemistry

Author(s): Ankita Maji, Sachin M., V. Mohana Srinivasan, C. Subathra Devi

Graphical Abstract:



Background: Hepatitis B is a disease which has caused major loss of life over the years. The treatment for the disease is very expensive and cure rate is less. Due to its high cost developing or underdeveloped countries are far out of reach from treatment to hepatitis B. There are vaccines produced against this disease but its cost has limited the use by the masses. In the recent years the plant based vaccines called edible vaccines which are cheap compared to the traditional vaccines have been current area of research.

Objective: Edible vaccines using banana have been prepared for Hepatitis B but in this hypothetical paper we have put forward our idea on preparing edible banana vaccine for Hepatitis B thorough a different methodology.Theoretical Model: We hypothesised to increase the expression level of the transgene by using pBIN19 as a vector instead of traditional Agrobacterium Ti plasmid. The paper also focuses on mechanism of the mode of action of vaccine along with advantages, disadvantages, challenges and future prospects of edible banana vaccine.

Press Release for EurekAlert! Insulin resistance and polycystic ovary syndrome

Insulin resistance represents a major issue for people with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), an endocrine disorder which is very common in young women, according to a new analysis of available data carried out by Dr. Paolo Moghetti, Associate Professor of Endocrinology at the University of Verona, Italy. His study reviewed information on epidemiology, pathogenesis, pathophysiology and treatment of the impaired insulin action frequently found in women with the condition. According to this analysis, insulin resistance appears to be a key mechanism in the pathogenesis of PCOS itself, primarily because hyperinsulinemia has a strict, probably bidirectional, interaction with androgen excess. Moreover, the impairment in insulin action is a central mechanism in the origin of metabolic abnormalities, which are also frequently found in these women and represent a major aspect underlying the medical burden attributed to PCOS. However, it is important to note that the risk of insulin resistance differs between clinical phenotypes of PCOS. Therefore, phenotyping of these women is helpful in defining their individual metabolic risk.

A fundamental question, which still remains unsolved, is why a large percentage of people with PCOS are insulin resistant. Most available data suggest that these women may have alterations in insulin action of heterogeneous origins, which induce specific abnormalities in these subjects due to the presence of intrinsic defects. Both genetic and acquired factors seem to be involved in this process. Body fat excess, which is another common feature of these women, may contribute to this phenomenon, combining with the effect of PCOS per se and worsening many clinical abnormalities typical of these subjects. In terms of treatment, insulin sensitization, by lifestyle changes and/or specific medications, is a strategy that shows several potential beneficial effects in this condition. However, treatment of these women must be personalized.

New Issue :: Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering 4, Issue 3

Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering is the official journal of the Institute of Complex Medical Engineering (ICME). The journal promotes the best interdisciplinary research in neuroscience and biomedical engineering. NBE welcomes contributions in any domain of neural and biomedical engineering ranging in content from practical/clinical applications through experimental science, technological developments to quantitative and/or statistical methodology discussions. NBE publishes the following article types: original articles, research reviews, and book reviews.

The goal of this journal is to establish a new forum for this interdisciplinary field so that neuroscientists and biomedical engineers can publish their research works in one periodical. NBE is devoted to bridge the gap between Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering, and to foster the mutual understanding in both fields.
