ProtoKinetix’ AAGP™ Shows Promise as a Tool in Diabetes Treatment / Cure
Posted: Tuesday, January 12, 2010
Independent studies done by universities and corporations have illustrated a remarkable increase in the yield of viable stem cells after cryopreservation using AAGP™ in the freeze-thaw process. One future approach to increasing diabetics’ insulin production is related to an ability to convert their stem cells into islet cells for transplantation. The feasibility of this procedure is dependent upon the amount of functioning islet cells that can be derived from the patient’s stem cells. This is where AAGP™ can make a very beneficial contribution.

Scientific Peer Review of Research Applications for the Department of Defense - Andrew P. Mandell
Posted: Thursday, August 06, 2009
Diabetes advocate, Andrew P. Mandell, MR. DIABETES® and Executive Director of Defeat Diabetes Foundation, Inc., recently participated in the evaluation of research proposals submitted to the Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP) sponsored by the Department of Defense.

Discovery of Genetic Switch Finds a Possible Cure for Type 1 Diabetes
Posted: Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Scientists have identified a master regulator gene for early embryonic development of the pancreas and other organs, putting researchers closer to coaxing stem cells into pancreatic cells as a possible cure for Type 1 diabetes.

New Possible Bone Marrow Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetes
Posted: Wednesday, June 24, 2009
Dr. Aaron Vinik, principle investigator for the study at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, is testing a new diabetes drug, Prochymal. It’s part of a first-of-its-kind study for finding a possible cure.

Bone Marrow Stem Cells Reverse Heart Failure
Posted: Friday, May 29, 2009
Because of the lack of available hearts for transplantation, in addition to excessive medical costs, many people are living with dysfunctional, or "failing" hearts. A new stem cell treatment, involving injection of bone marrow stem cells into skeletal muscle, appears to help reverse heart failure by repairing cardiac tissue.

Possible Links Between Alzheimer's and Diabetes
Posted: Saturday, May 16, 2009
Both type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease are more prevalent with advanced age, and many possible links between the two may exist. Most notably, results of lifestyle choices, such as unhealthy and excessive food intake, may increase the risk of both conditions, but more specific links appear to exist as well. These connections were explored in a recent meta-analysis of 14 previous studies.

Transplants Help Type 1 Diabetics Stop Insulin Injections
Posted: Wednesday, April 29, 2009
People with Type 1 diabetes who received stem cell transplants from their own cells were able to go as long as four years without needing insulin treatments, U.S. researchers reported.

Self-Donated Stem Cells Help Diabetics
Posted: Wednesday, March 18, 2009
Autologous stem cell (ASC) infusions appear to greatly improve glycemic control in diabetics. The benefits of the procedure were further enhanced through hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment, before and after. The findings give some promise to a disease (specifically, type 2 diabetes) that is a growing worldwide problem, and has no known cure.

New Stem Cell Method Provides Less Controversy and Profound Potential
Posted: Tuesday, March 03, 2009
A newly developed method for producing stem cells that can mimic other cell types, could have wide reaching implications. The new process does not require controversial embryonic stem cells, and is speculated to have the potential to help cure diseases such as diabetes and Parkinson's.

Insulin Producing Cells Shown to Regenerate
Posted: Tuesday, July 22, 2008
An in vitro (controlled lab environment) experiment has recently concluded that insulin producing pancreatic beta-cells have the ability to regenerate themselves. This could greatly enhance the medical field's understanding of diabetes.
