Two scientific publications on vitamin D metabolism
29 March 2019
Several Admescope scientists have contributed to two recently published interesting peer reviewed scientific research articles related to vitamin D metabolism.
The first article, titled “Fasting-Induced Transcription Factors Repress Vitamin D Bioactivation, a Mechanism for Vitamin D Deficiency in Diabetes”, focuses on uncovering molecular mechanism for vitamin D deficiency in diabetics and reveals a novel negative feedback mechanism controlling cross-talk between energy homeostasis and the vitamin D pathway. In the second article, “Pharmacokinetics of intra-articular vitamin D analogue calcipotriol in sheep and metabolism in human synovial and mesenchymal stromal cells”, our scientists have been involved in investigating intra-articular ADME properties of vitamin D analogue calcipotriol, which is a promising candidate for local treatment of arthritis.
At Admescope, we acknowledge the importance of academic research and encourage our scientists to actively collaborate with the academia. Stay tuned for more interesting publications!
