Researchers Overcome Stumbling Block to Developing Successful Insulin-Cell Transplants for Type 1 Diabetics
Researchers at Johns Hopkins have found a way to overcome a major stumbling block to developing successful insulin-cell transplants for people with type I diabetes.
Disetronic announced a voluntary nationwide recall of all ACCU-CHEK Ultraflex Infusion Sets because of a potential that tubing could fully or partially separate at the luer lock-tubing connection.
Interference With Blood Glucose Measurement Following Use of Parenteral Maltose/Galactose/Oral Xylose-Containing Products
Potential for life-threatening falsely elevated glucose readings in patients who have received parenteral products containing maltose or galactose, or oral xylose, and are subsequently tested using glucose dehydrogenase pyrroloquinolinequinone (GDH-PQQ) based glucose monitoring systems.
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.
For the first time ever, researchers studied the use of a common type 2 diabetes drug on type 1 diabetes patients and found it...
Researchers have identified individual cells in the adult mouse pancreas capable of generating insulin-producing beta cells.
Warning: Patients Receiving Extraneal (icodextrin) for Peritoneal Dialysis Therapy May Have Falsely Elevated Blood...

Joslin study shows durability of insulin pump therapy for adolescents and identifies factors to help them overcome barriers to success.
A new method that uses nanotechnology to rapidly measure minute amounts of insulin is a major step toward developing the ability to assess the health of the body's insulin-producing cells in real time.
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.
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.
New treatment for Type 1 Diabetes is on the horizon thanks to researchers who discovered a more successful option than the one currently used.
About one-third of type 1 diabetics (T1D) produce insulin even upward of forty years from initial diagnosis, according to a new study.
