Omega-3 supplementation may prevent later-life obesity caused by early antibiotic exposure

A study by the Laboratory for Lipid Metabolism at Mass General sought to determine if high concentrations of Omega-3 fatty acids helped to prevent later-life obesity in children who were treated with antibiotics at an early age.


SIRT6 Suppresses Pancreatic Cancer through Control of Lin28b

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remains one of the most lethal of all human malignancies and is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. Thus, there is an urgent need to improve our understanding of the molecular underpinnings that drive PDAC initiation, progression, and metastasis and to leverage that understanding toward better therapeutic options. A new study by the laboratory of Raul Mostoslavsky, MD, PhD, has identified a potential treatment target.


Type 2 Diabetes Genetic Predisposition, Obesity, and All-Cause Mortality Risk in the United States: A Multiethnic Analysis

A team of researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital, including Aaron Leong, MD, recently sought to determine whether people who are genetically disposed to developing type 2 diabetes had a higher rate of mortality compared to those without a genetic disposition.


Intermediate Filaments Enable Pathogen Docking to Trigger Type 3 Effector Translocation

A recent research study by the research team in the lab of Marcia B. Goldberg, MD, sought to identify the human proteins required for bacterial pathogens to infect human cells.
