The new invention of researchers from the University of Cincinnati (USA) sounds like the perfect passive means of ridding the body of fat. Alas, about a miracle cure for weight loss speech does not go yet. Although the work is progressing in this direction, scientists are trying to manage the processes o excess fat from the bloodstream, to reduce the load on the body.

When the bodies of animals receive more energy than they consume, they store them in fat-triglyceride. Usually those are fat folds, but with a large excess washed out and run through the bloodstream, becoming a hindrance for him. For such cases, the body is provided a protein-a regulator of the apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5), which displays trigliceridi from the body.

Development of protein APOA5 is very low, it is poorly understood, so us scientists set up an experiment in his synthesis. This bacteria is introduced the corresponding gene, started the operation of the bacterial farm and after several attempts, achieved an impressive harvest of up to 25 ml per 1 liter of the medium. Now, with excess resources, scientists began to fatten mice and “clean” their blood with shock doses of APOA5.

Experiments with rodents have great success with their blood was successfully purified from triglycerides diet even if from a purely fatty foods. Alas, this is not to say that it is possible the same to repeat with the person, to the same scientists, nothing is known about the long-term effects and side factors. But at the disposal of researchers there is a comfortable farm with bacteria, which can grow the protein in the right amounts for further experiments.
