In addition, Dr. Paulina Ormazábal, the Health, presented some preliminary results of Sciences corresponding to this new line & # 39; research in the XXIX KUNGRATT DARM made in & # 39; Coquimbo.
The academic & # 39; South Health Sciences Institute (ICS), Dr. Paulina Ormazábal, given the Chilean Society fund & # 39; Endocrinology and Diabetes (SEDDA), to promote the development of & # 39; clinical or epidemiological research in basic clinical endocrinology and diabetes, which can & # 39; serve as a basis for lines & # 39; more advanced study or future projects.

"B & # 39; these funds would be able to choose to evaluate new molecular markers & # 39; & # 39 by inflammation; laboratory techniques much more specific and sensitive", explained Dr. Ormazábal.
Regarding the importance of giving this fund, the researcher said that "it is the work recognition & # 39; to develop research within UOH. This work aims to validate knowledge ethno-pharmacological on the use of & # 39; medicinal plants for the treatment of diseases. B & # 39; in particular, this research will study which often occurs a phenomenon in obesity and corresponds to inflammation of the liver due to the accumulation of & # 39; inside the liver cell fat. Dan & # 39; above is a cross where overweight and obesity are conditions as & # 39; high prevalence nationally and globally and unfortunately our region is not immune from this reality ".

The working title was presented in Congress "Effect & # 39; the idroalkoħoliku extract & # 39; Andean plant Lampaya on in vitro steatosis caused by human hepatocytes "
