Cambridge [UK], August 6 (ANI): Implantable insulin-releasing devices show potential as an alternate method of treating diabetes without insulin injections or cannula insertions. However, one barrier that has precluded their usage so far is that the immune system attacks them after implanta
Washington [US], August 5 (ANI): A team of scientists describe a series of studies designed to determine the relationship among insulin, fats and the vascular system and identified a new pathway in which the cells lining the blood vessels - called endothelial cells - drive the body's metabol
