New endovascular therapy shows the ability to reduce gastric production of “hunger hormone”

Collaborative researchers from Johns Hopkins and Duke University Medical Centers performed a new therapy known as “bariatric embolization” on 6 swine in a recent study published in the January edition of JVIR. The authors cited the growing obesity epidemic in the United States and relatively high morbidity associated with bariatric weight loss surgery as the stimulus for their investigation.

Their study found a 30% reduction in the ghrelin-immunoreactive cell density in the gastric fundus of pigs that underwent bariatric embolization via the gastric artery with 4-6 mL of diluted 40-µm calibrated microspheres compared to 6 control swine treated with normal saline. A trend toward increased stomach fibrosis (P = .07) was also found in the treated swine, as well as stomach ulcers in half the treatment subset.

This study sheds light upon the impact of bariatric embolization on stomach hormone production and supports the scientific basis for bariatric embolization as a minimally invasive weight loss therapy. The authors are currently planning to begin the first US clinical trial of bariatric embolization on humans this summer at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Immunohistochemical staining of the gastric fundi (×100) and duodena confirms a significant reduction in the ghrelin-immunoreactive cell density in the gastric fundus after embolization. There is no compensatory upregulation of ghrelin-expressing cells in the duodena of treated animals.

  3. An amazing testimony on how i conceive and also get cure from my fibroid permanently with his natural herbs , i wonder why people still don't believe that roots and herbs are very essential and fruitful in different aspect, especially when you can't conceive and bear children. I am a living witness because I tried all I could to be pregnant but all to no avail, on this faithful day, i decided to check the net for updates on healthy living and i came across testimonies of lot of women who Dr Onokun has helped with his native herbs to conceive. i decided to put a try because this has been my greatest problem in life so I emailed Dr Onokun, and he told me what to do which i did, after which he sent me some roots and herbs syrup and gave me step by step guild lines on how and when to have sex with my man. I missed my menstrual flow within a short period of taking it, and the doctor confirmed that I am pregnant. I am very glad to tell the world that I just put to bed a bouncing baby boy last week. Contact Dr Onokun for your own testimony on: Dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com Or WhatsApp: +2349064844957

OSO on how he cured her from herpes disease. And she also gave the email address of this man and advised anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help. so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well I never believed it, well after all the procedures and remedies given to me by this man a few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as DR. OSO assured me that I will be cured,after some time. I went to my doctor to confirm if I had finally healed Behold, it was TRUE,the test came out negative. So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact DR. OSO for help.

    testimony on how a powerful spell caster cured my HIV disease, i was
    diagnosed of this disease, in the year 2009, last week i saw a testimony on

    and he asked me to email him, which idid, so he told me that all my
    problems is over and then he decided to do an healing spell spell for me so
    after he finished it, he told me to wait for just 24 hours and then i
    should go for a test, so i really did as he had said, so my greatest
    surprised when i went to the hospital to go for an HIV test, the Medical
