Breakthrough for Cystic Fibrosis, Cancer, Diabetes and Obesity


Scientists discovered a fat controlling protein which might lead to a treatment for cystic fibrosis. The protein, which controls fat levels, was found to be malfunctioning in cystic fibrosis sufferers who are typically very lean.

The protein was also linked with cancer and diabetes which can develop as complications of the life-threatening lung condition.

Dr Anil Mehta, head of the Cystic Fibrosis Database at Dundee University and responsible for the international research team, said that the research results will highly impact cystic fibrosis researches and other diseases too.
