An anti-inflammatory drug called lisofylline could be beneficial for people at risk for Type 1 diabetes.
Research conducted by scientists has paved the way for development``of highly efficient sensors for measuring blood glucose in diabetic``patients.
In a finding that may open a new avenue to treating diabetes, researchers show that cells from the bone marrow give rise to insulin-producing cells in the pancreas of mice.
The ADA sent a letter to express reservations with proposed Medicaid reforms put forward by President George W. Bush.
Adding antioxidants to therapy improves drug's ability to reduce blood sugar.
Researchers suggest that they have a technique that may be used to detect a group of self-destructive cells involved in autoimmune disorders, which may increase ability to predict the development of diabetes.
FDA has cleared the first over-the-counter test that measures glycated hemoglobin in people with diabetes.
Embryonic stem cells were developed into a insulin producing tissue which kept diabetic mice alive -- something experts say is an important step toward new diabetes treatments.
Engineers have developed a prototype for an ultrasound insulin delivery system that is about the size and weight of a matchbook that can be worn as a patch on the body.
Scientists have found clues to why patients with insulin-dependent diabetes are often unable to sense their need to take life-saving glucose.
Could pave the way toward limitless supplies of pancreatic cells for transplantation therapy of diabetes.
Researchers have found neural stem cells in the peripheral nervous system of adult animals, where they were not believed to exist. The studies show that the intrinsic properties of neural stem cells vary according to the region of the peripheral nervous system in which the cells are located.
A team of researchers has discovered a way to use adult bone marrow stem cells to form new blood vessels in the eye or to deliver chemicals that will prevent the abnormal formation of new vessels.
Diabetes patients with low literacy are nearly twice as likely as patients with higher literacy to have poorly-controlled blood sugar and serious long-term diabetes complications.
A synthetic antioxidant developed by researchers improves the survival of islet cells used in transplants for diabetes.
New findings in clinical and basic science transplantation research to be presented; results of a study that treated diabetic children with a combination of cells from a pig’s pancreas and testes, and findings from three separate studies with a common goal in mind: to wean organ transplant patients off all anti-rejection drugs less than one year after transplantation, defying the tenet that such drugs are required for life.
