Associate Professor Greg Cooney, from Sydney's Garvan Institute of Medical Research, has discussed misconceptions surrounding ACC2 in findings that appear in the prestigious international journal, Cell Metabolism, online.
While none of the large pharmaceutical companies have marketed ACC2 inhibitors, there are many kinds of so-called 'fat-burning pills' available in the health food, body building and alternative medicine markets, where limited clinical effectiveness data are required.
To maximise fun and safety, the ACC2 has electronically controlled four-wheel drive, a six-speed semi-automatic gearbox that allows gearchanges from buttons on the steering wheel and a 300bhp turbocharged 2.
From patient data, the researchers also determined that low levels of activation of the gene that makes the ACC2 enzyme, which normally restricts fatty acid oxidation, was associated with worse survival in breast cancer patients, especially those with triple-negative breast cancer.
