Posted: Sunday, August 29, 2010
A Brazilian surgeon has developed a new procedure usinging surgical intervention through "Ileal Transposition" (or small intestinal switch) that can effectively control Type 2 diabetes.

Nanoparticle Vaccine Cures Type 1 in Mice
Posted: Sunday, August 29, 2010
Using a sophisticated nanotechnology-based "vaccine," researchers were able to successfully cure mice with Type 1 diabetes and slow the onset of the disease in mice at risk for the disease.

Insulin Peptide Points to a Solution for Type 1 Diabetes
Posted: Sunday, June 27, 2010
Researchers at National Jewish Health and the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus have identified the precise protein fragment, or peptide, that can trigger diabetes in mice.

The finding, supports an emerging theory about the origins of autoimmunity, and may lead to new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in humans.
