ADA Scientific Sessions 
  • ADA President's Oral Session I highlights latest studies
    White adipose tissue responds favorably to exercise training, according to research reported at the ADA President's Oral Session I on Friday. Seven other studies presented at the session covered topics ranging from targeting nitrosative stress as a way to reduce birth defects to the multiple roles intestinal epithelium play in regulating insulin sensitivity and metabolism. Researchers also discussed inhibition of the Pl3K pathway and intrahepatic islet transplantation as possible new strategies to combat type 1 diabetes. Many of these studies will be presented again Saturday and Sunday. ADA Diabetes Dispatch (2013) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Experts discuss active role of beta cells in type 1 diabetes
    Beta cells play an active role in the autoimmune response in type 1 diabetes, according to Dr. Decio L. Eizirik of Belgium's Universite Libre de Bruxelles, who, along with three other experts, discussed beta cell failure in patients with the disease during a symposium on Friday. "There is a dialogue between beta cells and the immune system which is, to a large extent, regulated by inflammatory regulators," he said.

  • Outcomes continue to improve for transplant therapies
    A Saturday afternoon symposium on transplant therapies for type 1 diabetes will explore the latest studies on pancreas and islet transplants and immunomodulation strategies. Outcomes of such treatments continue to improve, noted Dr. Jon S. Odorico of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Nicole A. Turgeon of Emory University will discuss the Clinical Islet Transplantation Consortium, which, she notes, seeks to "advance islet transplantation through innovative Phase 2 clinical trials, and ... to obtain licensure for an islet product through Phase 3 trials."
