In addition, Paulina Ormazabal, of the Institute of Health Sciences, Coquimbo XXIX. XXIX Congress He presented the results of previous research in Congress.
The Academic Institute for Health Sciences (ICS), Dr. Paulina Ormazabal, received funding from the Association of Endocrinology and Diabetes Association of Chile. It aims to promote the development of a clinical or clinical epidemiological research. Endocrinology and Diabetes as a basis for advanced research projects or advanced projects.
Dr Ormazabal presented the project "Effect of the plant" along with the fund Lampaya Medicinalis Phil. Activation of JNK and HEPG2 in human fatty acids by fatty acids in TNF-α and FABP4 levels. "This constitutes a new branch of research for academic UOHs for the benefit of endemic plant in the Chilean mountain range, Lampaya MedicinalisLiver inflammation caused by fatty acids by the liver.
"With the funds, new molecular inflammatory markers can be evaluated through more precise and sensitive laboratory techniques," explains Dr. Ormazabal.
As regards the importance of allocating the fund, the researcher is confident in the research work carried out in the UOH, which aims to validate ethno-pharmacological knowledge on the use of medicinal products for the treatment of illnesses, which will study a phenomenon that often occurs in obesity and within the liver The accumulation of fat is in the liver inflammation. Above, when transcendental, overweight and obesity are countries with high prevalence nationally and globally and, unfortunately, our region does not escape this reality. "
Scientifically verified Lampaya Medicinalis It has an anti-inflammatory effect, it will have a significant effect locally and nationally, as it is a native Chilean plant, and will project its use as an additional therapy to treat inflammatory phenomena with overweight and obesity.
At the first five of the COST collected
In addition, Dr Ormazabal presented preliminary results on the new line of previous research, in the municipality of Coquimbo XXIX. In the Congress, from November 8th to 10th.
The title of the work presented at the conference was "Andean hydro-hydroushydric effect" Lampaya human induced hepatocyte steatosis in vitro induces "
This time, the work was chosen among the top five in the field of endocrinology.
This research is the result of multidisciplinary work by chemists, biologists and biochemists. The extract of Lampaya Medicinalis Produced by researchers from the Laboratory of Biological Chemistry of the University of Antofagasta of Antofagasta University, the experiment is being carried out by the INTA laboratory in obesity, metabolism and aging.
In October of this year, the academic ICS was awarded the SOCHINUT – Henri Nestlé 2018 Scientific Development Award. This provides support and vision to researchers, with their active and innovative work, to enhance the quality of life of the Chilean food, nutrition and health, with the research project "Lampaya Medicinal Phil Plant Protection Effect." Hepatocyte inflammation caused by steatosis and liver fat in HEPG2 human hepatocyte ".
