Potential diabetes breakthrough

Potential diabetes breakthrough | diabetes and more | Scoop.it
Harvard Stem Cell Institute researchers have discovered a new hormone that holds promise for a dramatically more effective treatment of type 2 diabetes, a metabolic illness afflicting an estimated 26 million Americans.
Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

"

The work was published today by the journal Cell as an early on-line release. It is scheduled for the May 9 print edition of the journal.

The hormone, called betatrophin, causes mice to produce insulin-secreting pancreatic beta cells at up to 30 times the normal rate. The new beta cells only produce insulin when called for by the body, offering the potential for the natural regulation of insulin and a great reduction in the complications associated with diabetes, the leading medical cause of amputations and non-genetic loss of vision."
