Améliorer le diabète en séparant le sucre du sel : de la chirurgie à la diététique

Des chercheurs de l’Unité Mixte de Recherche 1190 «Recherche Translationnelle sur le Diabète» (Université de Lille – Inserm – CHRU de Lille) dirigée par le Pr Pattou, viennent d’expliquer le mécanisme physiologique par lequel la chirurgie de l’obésité dite «bypass» gastrique améliore le diabète de type 2. D’un point de vue plus général, leur découverte tend à démontrer que de simples mesures diététiques mimant l’effet de la chirurgie, comme la diminution de l’ingestion simultanée de sel et de sucre, pourraient contribuer à prévenir le diabète. Ces travaux sont publiés dans la revue Cell Metabolism (*).

Cancer metastasis: it all depends on the patient’s immune response

The researchers from Unit 1138, “Integrative Cancer Immunology,” (Inserm, Pierre and Marie Curie and Paris Descartes Universities) have analysed the tumours from 838 patients with colorectal cancer, in order to identify markers for their metastatic potential. The genomic characteristics of the cancer cells seem to have little relevance. Conversely, lymphatic vascularisation around the tumour and the intensity of the patient’s immune response appear to be crucial, and might be used as markers to predict the progression of the disease.
The article detailing these findings is published in Science Translational Medicine on 24 February 2016.
