  • Piperlongumine attenuates bile duct ligation-induced liver fibrosis.
    PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2020 Nov ;88:106909. Epub 2020 Sep 1. PMID: 32882664 Abstract Title:  Piperlongumine attenuates bile duct ligation-induced liver fibrosis in mice via inhibition of TGF-β1/Smad and EMT pathways. Abstract:  Liver fibrosis (LF) is a progressive liver injury that may result in excessive accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM). However, transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) and epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) play a central role in the progression of LF through the activation of matrix producing hepatic stellate cells (HSCs). Piperlongumine (PL), an alkaloid extracted from Piper longum, has been reported to possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities in various diseases but... Read more »

Those LHA neurons feed directly into the mesolimbic dopamine system, which controls the rewarding properties assigned to things. The study therefore adds to growing evidence that leptin doesn't turn your appetite on and off just by controlling whether you feel hungry or full. It can also make you want food more or less regardless of hunger.... Read more »
