In addition, Dr. Paulina Ormazábal, from the Institute for Health Sciences, has submitted a number of preliminary results to this new researcher at the XXIX SOCHED Congress this place in Coquimbo.
The academic university of the Institute of Health Sciences (ICS), Dr. Paulina Ormazábal, was awarded the financing of the Chilean Genocide of Endocrinology and Diabetes (SOCHED), which sought to promote the development of clinical, clinical or clinical epidemic research in endocrinology and diabetes; As a basis for study areas or more advanced future projects can serve.
Dr. Ormazabal places the fund with its project "Effect of the plant Lampaya Medicinalis Phil. on the activation of JNK and the levels of TNF-α and FABP4 have been influenced by fatty acids in human hepatocytes HEPG2, which provides a new department within the research that develops the UOH academic about the beneficial effects of an endemic plant from the Chilean Highlands, Lampaya Medicinalis, against inflammation that are penetrated by greasy types in circulatory cells.
"With these funds I will choose to evaluate new molecular markers of refraction by much more specific and sensitive laboratory techniques," said Dr. Ormazábal.
Regarding the use of this fund, the researcher said that "it is an acknowledgment of the research that is being developed in" UOH ". This work aims to identify etny-pharmacological knowledge about the use of medicines for The treatment of diseases, especially through this study, will examine a vision that often finds in obesity and this corresponds to the dissolution of the liver by the accumulation of oils in the flesh. The above is transcendental as obesity and obesity are conditions with a high prevalence nationally and globally and delicious our region does not come from this reality. "
Confirm scientifically that the Lampaya Medicinalis It has an anti-inflammatory effect, it will have a major impact on places and also in the country, it is a major Chinese plant, and can use it as a complementary therapy for treating hepatic inflammatory phenomena that & # 39; t affiliated with overwhelming and ability.
Within the top five of the SOCHED Congress
In addition, Dr. Ormazbal preliminary results match this new line of investigation at the XXIX SOCHED Congress that place in the town of Coquimbo, between 8 and 10 November just past.
The title of the work presented at the conference was # 39; Effect of a hydro-alcoholic design of & nbsp; e Andean plant Lampaya on in vitro-induced steatosis in human hepatocytes "
On occasion, the work was chosen among the top five in the field of intra-endocrinology.
This study is the product of the multidisciplinary work of artists, biologists and biomechanists. The extract of Lampaya Medicinalis It is prepared and donated by researchers from the Biological Chemistry Laboart of the Antofagasta Institute, of the University of Antofagasta, while the experiments are performed in the Laboratory for Obstetrics, Metabolism and Aging of INTA.
It should be assumed that in October of this year, the academic ICS took over the SEFA-Nestlé 2018 Scientific Development Fund Award, attempting to visualize and visibility for researchers who have their active and innovative work contributing to the improvement of the quality of life of the United States at # food, and health – with its research project "Protection of the plant Lampaya medicinalis Phil. on statatosis and hepatic inflammations that have been penetrated by fatty acid in human hepatocytes HEPG2" .
