CMXC Announces Additional Results of Preliminary Analysis of Metabolomic Assays
News Apr 15, 2015
Cell MedX Corp. has announced additional results of the ongoing analysis of metabolomic assays taken during the Phase 1 pilot clinical trial.
The pilot clinical discovery phase trial in two diabetic subjects was performed in January 2015. Ongoing metabolomic analyses of the samples have yielded additional insights into the immediate metabolic alterations brought about by a single e-balance technology treatment.
In addition to indications of increased sensitivity to insulin, glycolytic processes are also clearly upregulated. These new findings reveal enhanced transport as well as utilization of glucose during a treatment.
Further exploration of these pathways will continue, along with sustained treatment end points such as HbA1C, in a formal Phase 1B clinical trial scheduled to take place in Newport Beach, CA. In order to carry out the clinical trial, the Company has started recruiting subjects with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
The analysis of the samples was conducted by The Metabolomics Innovation Centre at the University of Alberta (“TMIC”), whose analytic and informatics toolsets and translational “omics” expertise allows for cost-effective and more accurate results of assays.
‘Good Cholesterol’ May Not Always be Good for Postmenopausal WomenNews
Postmenopausal factors may have an impact on the heart-protective qualities of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) – also known as ‘good cholesterol’ – according to a study led by researchers in the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health.READ MORE
What Makes Good Brain Proteins Turn Bad?News
The protein FUS is implicated in two neurodegenerative diseases: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). Using a newly developed fruit fly model, researchers have zoomed in on the protein structure of FUS to gain more insight into how it causes neuronal toxicity and disease.
