Researchers Cure Diabetes in Mice
In an exciting breakthrough, Canadian researchers have cured diabetes in mice and have hopes that the cure will extend to humans.
Diabetic mice became healthy virtually overnight after researchers injected a substance to counteract the effect of malfunctioning pain neurons in the pancreas.
This is exciting news, not only for diabetes but for the future treatment of other diseases.
They also conclude that there are far more similarities than previously thought between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and that nerves likely play a role in other chronic inflammatory conditions, such as asthma and Crohn's disease.
