Rising TSLP levels in human beings may help secrete fat sebum, but there may be a range of safety hazards.
Researchers who seek new ways of treating Type 2 diabetes have accidently came across such a technique that can activate fat cell secretion through the skin. The technique can transform from animal models into human beings, but it could be difficult to convert it into secure obesity diagnosis. The experiment proceeded with an analysis of how a thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) protein affects the metabolic rate of energy in mice. The proposed assumption was that, expanding TSLP levels in mice would reduce their risk of evolving diabetes. ‘At first we did not believe that TSLP itself would influence obesity, we sought to explore out if it could influence tolerance to insulin. We thought the cytokine might fix Type 2 diabetes without losing any weight in the mouse.’ states the study’s lead researcher Mr. Taku Kambayashi.
The mice demonstrates considerable positive changes in blood glucose after a month of therapy intended to boost TSLP levels. But unexpectedly, huge quantities of visceral fat were also decreased in the rodents. Even more surprisingly, the TSLP-treated mice lost weight while eating up to 30% more meals than the treated animals. The scientists found that the mice were actually ‘sweating far’ when extracting oils from the animal fur. The fat tissue in the oils are a form of sebum which is a waxy material which is discharged into the skin by the glands. The secretion of sebum is usually controlled by hormone.
Increased hormonal behavior in humans is common in puberty to boost the high sebum secretion that leads to this beat known wave of adolescent acne. This is the very first scientific proof, as Kambayashi tries to point out, that the sebum secretion of the immune system is greatly affected. Rising TSLP rates in human beings may help secrete fat sebum, and there might the range of safety problem. In mice for instance, increased TSLP levels caused a large amount of organ immune cell infiltrations. Still in order to establish a new kind of anti-obesity therapy, Kambayashi and his colleagues are once again examining this technique.
