Diabetes research takes unexpected turn

Years of diabetes research carried out on mice whose DNA had been altered with a human growth hormone gene is now ripe for reinterpretation after a new study by researchers at KU Leuven confirms that the gene had an unintended effect on mouse insulin production, a key variable in diabetes research. Genetically modified mice have [...]

Development Of ‘All-Natural’ Method For Studying Pancreatic Islets Aids Diabetes Research And Is Translatable To Other Diseases

Food isn’t the only thing going organic these days. An ‘all-natural’ method for studying pancreatic islets, the small tissues responsible for insulin production and regulation in the body, has recently been developed by researchers at the University of Toronto’s Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) to try to track metabolic changes in living tissues [...]

Hormone In Fruit Flies Sheds Light On Diabetes Cure, Weight-Loss Drug For Humans
