Air Pollution - A Global Threat to our Health

Join the free online course: https://www.coursera.org/learn/air-pollution-health-threat

About this course: We all have to breathe to live. But the air we breathe is polluted both outdoors and indoors. Each year, this pollution costs 7 million lives across the globe – and a lot of suffering. 1 in 8 deaths is due to air pollution. This course will provide you with an introduction to the most recent research in the field of health effects of air pollution as well as a broader understanding of sources and spread of air pollution and what we should do about it.

What is air pollution? What are the sources? How and where are we exposed outdoors and indoors? What happens in the body? Which diseases are the result? Who are the most vulnerable? How can we assess the effects of air pollution? And what should we do to reach the Sustainable Development Goal to “substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution”? These are some of the important questions we will address in the course.

During the course you will meet researchers and experts from the University of Copenhagen and the Technical University of Denmark. They work with different aspects of air pollution and health: toxicology, exposure assessment, epidemiology, engineering and health impact assessment. It is a global responsibility to combat the health impacts of air pollution, and this fight can only be won through new knowledge and global collaboration.

We hope you will join us in the course and equip yourself to take part in this global and individual health challenge.

Diabetes - A Global Challenge - Clinical Manifestation of Diabetes and Treatment Part 1 (25:27)
Rating

The aim of this presentation is to address different hot topics in our current understanding of aetiology as well as of the pathophysiology of Type 2 Diabetes. We’ll address how genetic as well as epi-genetic and non-genetic mechanisms may be involved in the complex mechanisms underlying type 2 diabetes. We’ll also introduce recent data suggesting that immature stem-cell functions are likely to play an important role for development of type 2 diabetes and its associated cardiometabolic disturbances. Finally we’ll address the current treatment options of disease with respect of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment modalities.

In this presentation we’ll talk about the effects of GLP-1 (Glucagon Like Peptide 1), GLP-1 has important actions on gastrointestinal secretion and motility, and it acts to inhibit appetite and food intake. In continuation of the effects of GLP-1, we’ll talk about GLP-1, GIP, lipids, proteins, and dipeptidyl peptidase-4.

This presentation talks about intravenously GLP-1 infusion to patients with type 2 diabetes. The GLP-1 infusion is capable of restoring fasting glucose concentrations during the night time and can nearly normalize the meal-induced glucose excursions after meal ingestion. GLP-1 has many attractive actions regarding diabetes type 2 treatment, which is the theme of this presentation.

Diabetes - A Global Challenge - Genetic Aspects of Non-autoimmune Diabetes Part 1 (06:40)
Rating

This presentation provides an introduction to the genetic aspects of non-autoimmune diabetes. First we’ll introduce the genetic basis of diabetes, then we’ll talk about methods to identify genetic loci associated with diabetes and pre-diabetic traits. In continuation of this, we’ll provide examples of monogenic forms of diabetes and finally we’ll discuss common forms of non-autoimmune diabetes.
