Pancreas Glucagon Producing Cells Can Alter Their Identity

Glucagon-producing cells in the pancreas can change identity and adapt to do the job for their neighbouring damaged or missing insulin cells, researchers at the University of Bergen, in collaboration with other international researchers, have discovered. “We are possibly facing the start of a totally new form of treatment for diabetes, where the body can […]

VDAC1 Inhibition Restores Beta Cell Function And Prevents Hyperglycemia

By blocking a protein, VDAC1, in the insulin-producing beta cells, it is possible to restore their normal function in type 2 diabetes. In preclinical experiments, the researchers behind a new study have also shown that it is possible to prevent the development of the disease. The researchers at Lund University in Sweden believe that the active […]
