New Gene For Diabetes Found
Posted: Monday, November 08, 2004
A gene involved in the action of insulin is associated with type 2 diabetes and the body’s response to insulin has been found and reported on."The protein that this gene makes represses the insulin response, so if you are making a lot of this protein, your ability to respond to insulin would be blunted, which would lead to higher glucose (sugar) in your bloodstream. If it is too high, that’s diabetes,"

How Do High Carb Diets Lead To Obesity And Diabetes?
Posted: Sunday, November 07, 2004
Dr. Kosaku Uyeda, professor of biochemistry, has shown that a single protein called carbohydrate response element binding protein (ChREBP), discovered by his research group, activates several genes that cause cells in the liver to turn sugar into fat.


Islet Transplantation Faces Serious Challenges

Very few patients remain insulin independent beyond 4 years after transplantation

Update for Islet Cell Transplants for Diabetes
Posted: Wednesday, September 29, 2004
About 58% of diabetes patients given an experimental transplant of pancreatic cells are able to live without insulin injections a year later, Canadian and U.S. doctors reported.


Fruit Fly Pancreas Points to Possible Diabetes Cures
Posted: Wednesday, September 22, 2004
Fruit flies have cells that function like a miniature pancreas, which is good news for researchers hoping to use the tiny insects to develop cures for diabetes

Help Is On The Way For Losing Weight And Smoking Cessation
Posted: Thursday, September 16, 2004
First year results of the two year trial Rimonabant In Obesity (RIO, a Phase III clinical study), showed a 3.5 inch reduction in waist circumference, 19 pounds lost, reduced metabolic syndrome 50%, raised HDL 28%. Rimonabant (endocannabinoid) in another study doubled the odds of quitting smoking without weight gain

Pancreatic Stem Cells Can Be A Cure For Diabetes
Posted: Wednesday, September 08, 2004
Toronto University scientists have said that stem cells can be a cure for diabetes, thereby eradicating the need for replacing insulin.
The lead scientists of the study have identified individual cells in the adult mouse pancreas that are capable of making insulin-producing "beta cells." These beta cells make up the tissues in the organ that release insulin and help regulate the body's blood sugar levels.


First OTC Cholesterol Drug Launched
Posted: Thursday, August 05, 2004
Britain became the first country in the world to sell a cholesterol-lowering drug without a prescription on Thursday when a low-dose "over-the-counter" (OTC) form of Merck & Co Inc's Zocor was launched

New Gene Associated With Diabetes Discovered
Posted: Wednesday, July 28, 2004
Researchers have identified a new gene, a mutation which is associated with type 1 diabetes.
The finding gives scientists a clue about the autoimmune cause of diabetes and suggests that the mutated SUMO-4 gene may influence the inflammatory process itself and increase the susceptibility to the complications of diabetes.
