Research could lead to treatments for obesity, extreme weight loss News

Research could lead to treatments for obesity, extreme weight loss

Mysterious cells that secrete hormones in the large intestine play a key role in regulating body weight through their relationship with intestinal bacteria, a study led by UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers suggests. Their findings, published in Nature Metabolism, could lead to new treatments for obesity and extreme weight loss.

Inside the OR: Robotic Pancreatic Surgery

The Whipple procedure is one of the most technically challenging abdominal surgeries – and it is also a UT Southwestern specialty. In this video, Dr. Herbert Zeh, Chair of our Department of Surgery, and Dr. Patricio Polanco, a GI and robotic surgery expert, take you inside the operating room for a firsthand look at this complex surgery.

UTSW researchers identify driver of inflammatory bowel disease

Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have discovered an intracellular mechanism that converts protective intestinal cells into disease-driving pathogenic cells, a finding that could lead to improved treatments for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Tumor loss-of-function mutations in STK11/LKB1 induce cachexia News

Tumor loss-of-function mutations in STK11/LKB1 induce cachexia

Cancer cachexia (CC), a wasting syndrome of muscle and adipose tissue resulting in weight loss, is observed in 50% of patients with solid tumors. Management of CC is limited by the absence of biomarkers and knowledge of molecules that drive its phenotype.
UT Southwestern: A global leader in robotic pancreas surgery News

UT Southwestern: A global leader in robotic pancreas surgery

Traditionally performed through a large incision, at UT Southwestern our pancreatic cancer surgeons have specialized in robotic-assisted Whipple surgery, a more precise approach through smaller incisions that has been proven to benefit patients with faster recovery times, less pain, less use of pain medication, and prompter return to work. It has also been shown to have comparable cancer treatment results with lower rates of complications and transfusions than the open surgery.
UT Southwestern scientists discover agent that reverses effects of intoxication News

UT Southwestern scientists discover agent that reverses effects of intoxication

A shot of a liver-produced hormone called FGF21 sobered up mice that had passed out from alcohol, allowing them to regain consciousness and coordination much faster than those that didn’t receive this treatment, UT Southwestern researchers report in a new study.
