Abstract Background Macrophages play important roles during wound healing, and delayed healing in diabetics is associated with sustained inflammation. M1 type macrophage is recognized to secrete excessive amount of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) as compared to its M2 counterpart. Objectives We hypothesized that macrophage polarization is different between diabetic and normal rats during skin wounding and has direct impact on keratinocyte function in the context of re-epithelialization. Meth...

Abstract Background Skin cancer is an important environmentally-related health issue. Although sun exposure is closely associated with increasing environmental heat, the effects of environmental heat on the skin, especially in the context of photocarcinogenesis, has not been carefully examined. Objectives This study aimed to explore the effects and interactions of UVB radiation and environmental heat on photocarcinogenesis of the skin using cell and animal models. Methods Cultured keratinocytes ...

Our objective was to investigate and compare the effects of heat-killed (HK) and live Lactobacillus reuteri GMNL-263 (Lr263) on insulin resistance and its related complications in high-fat diet (HFD)-induced rats. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed with a HFD with either HK or live Lr263 for 12 weeks. The increases in the weight gain, serum glucose, insulin, and lipid profiles in the serum and liver observed in the HFD group were significantly reduced after HK or live Lr263 administration. Feedin...
