Diabetes Prevention Programs Beneficial in Improving Cardio-Metabolic Profiles

A new study by researchers at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that lifestyle modification programs modeled on diabetes prevention programs (DPP) trials not only achieved weight reduction, but also additional metabolic benefits -specifically, reductions in blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. The researchers compiled data from 44 published studies with nearly 9,000 adults participating in DPP conducted in US communities, clinics, and through online media.

Researchers Provide New Insight Into Deadly Fungal Infections

Most people don’t think of fungal infections as deadly – they are generally viewed as annoyances – athlete’s foot, for instance. But for many weakened patients in the hospital, fungal infections can be life threatening. Now, a new study has provided insights into one of these microbes, the Mucorales fungi, which can cause fatal infections.

Research Suggests That Diabetes Could Be Due to Failure of Beta Cell ‘Hubs’

The significant role of beta cell ‘hubs’ in the pancreas has been demonstrated for the first time, suggesting that diabetes may due to the failure of a privileged few cells, rather than the behaviour of all cells.

IU Research Points Toward New Blindness Prevention Methods in Diabetic Eye Disease

VEGF_Oxygen_charts_1x1.jpg

Indiana University researchers have created a virtual tissue model of diabetes in the eye that shows precisely how a small protein that can both damage or grow blood vessels in the eye causes vision loss and blindness in people with diabetes. The study, reported in the journal PLOS Computational Biology, could also lead to better treatment for diabetic retinopathy, which currently requires multiple, invasive procedures that aren’t always effective in the long term.
