Last week during the Annual Dutch Diabetes Research Meeting, Julian Mevenkamp presented his work on the development of a new Phosphorus Magnetic Resonance Technique to detect NAD-metabolites in skeletal muscle.
The key messages of this presentation were that:
- NAD-metabolites can be measured non-invasively by 31P-MRS
- Acute changes in NAD-metabolite levels can be determined
- Differences in NAD-metabolite levels between older trained, sedentary and impaired individuals could be measured as well
