Novel same-day Type 2 diabetes treatment study launches in US

University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

A same-day procedural therapy to improve glucose control for Type 2 diabetes patients will be investigated in a pilot study at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). Absalon D. Gutierrez, MD, and Nirav C. Thosani, MD, are among the first physician-researchers in the country to assess the safety and effectiveness of The Revita™ System, designed to help improve blood sugar levels without the need for additional medications.

Deciphering diabetes with ‘game-changing’ human blood vessels from stem cells

Institute of Molecular Biotechnology

Changes in blood vessels are the major cause of death and morbidity in diabetes. For the first time, sci-entists managed to grow perfect human blood vessels as organoids in a petri dish. This breakthrough engineering technology dramatically advances research of vascular dysfunction in diseases like diabetes, identifying a key pathway that prevents diabetic vasculopathy, as reported in the current issue of Nature.
