  1. Researchers have identified a protein that plays a key role in how the brain regulates appetite and metabolism. Loss of the protein, XRN1, from the forebrain, resulted in obese mice with an insatiable appetite, according to a new study.
  2. A study has revealed for the first time that the contraceptive pill can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by over a quarter in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The research findings also show that women with PCOS have twice the risk of developing type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes (dysglycemia) -- highlighting the urgent need to find treatments to reduce this risk.
  3. In patients with COVID-19, a high body mass index (BMI) is associated with an increased risk of death and prolonged intensive care unit (ICU) stay, according to a new study.
  4. Mutations linking liver disease with obesity and diabetes have been identified, leading to new understanding about how systemic diseases interact.
  5. Biologists have found that mother roundworms can pass stress signals to future generations. The biologists report a mother roundworm exposed to a stressor can even under certain conditions pass the memory of that exposure to their grandchildren.
  6. Fasting levels of the 'hunger hormone' ghrelin rebound after weight loss and can help reduce belly fat and improve the body's sensitivity to insulin, according to a new study.
  7. Investigators have developed a resource for analyzing how genetic variants in cells that drive type 2 diabetes may contribute to the disease.
