May 29, 2013 (Newswise) — Millions of people with type 1 diabetes depend on daily insulin injections to survive. They would die without the shots because their immune system attacks the very insulin-producing cells it was designed to protect. Now, a University of Missouri scientist has discovered that this attack causes more damage than scientists realized. The revelation is leading to a potential cure that combines adult stem cells with a promising new drug.
March 28, 2013 (The University of Queensland Australia) — Traditional Chinese medicine could be a key weapon in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, a joint international study has found.
Researchers, including The University of Queensland's Dr Sanjoy Paul and Peking University's Professor Lilong Ji from Beijing, have found that conventional drugs were significantly more effective when used alongside traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
The study involved a contr
March 25, 2013 (UAB) — A University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) medical student engaged in a summer fellowship discovered a previously uncategorized sub group of patients with type 2 diabetes that might bring about changes in clinical practice. The findings, published in February online in Diabetes Care, a journal of the American Diabetes Association, suggest that physicians will need to be on the lookout for patients presenting with the characteristics of the ne
March 5, 2013 (JDRF) — A JDRF-funded study out of Switzerland has shown that a single gene called SIRT1 may be involved in the development of type 1 diabetes (T1D) and other autoimmune diseases. The study, "Identification of a SIRT1 Mutation in a Family with Type 1 Diabetes," was published today in Cell Metabolism and represents the first demonstration of a monogenetic defect leading to the onset of T1D.
The research began when Marc Donath, M.D., endocrinologist and researcher at the University Hospital Basel in Switzerland, discovered an interesting pattern of autoimmune dise
February 7, 2013 (UAB) — Researchers from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), led by Fàtima Bosch, have shown for the first time that it is possible to cure diabetes in large animals with a single session of gene therapy. As published this week in Diabetes, the principal journal for research on the disease, after a single gene therapy session, the dogs recover their health and no longer show symptoms of t
