Selective adipose blockade of CB1 receptor increases energy expenditure and reduces body weight

WHO has declared obesity, particularly in childhood and adolescence, as the first public health problem worldwide. Treatment of obesity is often poorly effective and limited in time. This study demonstrates that selective blockade of endocannabinoid CB1 receptor in adipose tissue, which normally stores fat, transforms this tissue in thermogenically active brown fat and reduces body weight.

Gender medicine: human male and female endothelial cells are different

Female endothelial cells produce more nitric oxide (NO) than male counterpart, and this important feature is due to the higher expression of the NO-synthesizing enzyme in female cells. The ability to generate more NO may be involved in the protection against cardiovascular diseases characterizing the young female population.
