Optical projection tomography used to generate 3D model of beta cells to better understand pancreatic lesions in Diabetics

Researchers at the Umeå Center for Molecular Medicine have created the first 3D spatial visualization of an obese mouse pancreas showing the distribution dynamics of insulin-producing beta cells. The results show significant amounts of cystic lesions within pancreatic islets. These lesions could be linked to alterations in the mass and function of insulin-producing beta cells. …

Research shows advances in development of hand held breathalyzers to diagnose Diabetes

For several years, scientists have been working toward “breathalyzers” that can diagnose various diseases without painful pinpricks, needles or other unpleasant methods. Now, one team has developed a new, portable breath analyzer that could someday help doctors diagnose diabetes noninvasively in the office. The report appears in the ACS journal Analytical Chemistry. Many studies examining …
