Researchers reveal uncharted liver-focused pathway in gene therapy immune responses

Indiana University School of Medicine researchers have uncovered vital insights regarding a liver trigger that blocks an undesired immune response from gene therapy, surprisingly resulting in the activation of specific immune cells, despite the liver's typical role in suppressing immune responses. The findings, published in Molecular Therapy, may pave the way for change in immunomodulation strategies for desired and long-lasting effects of gene therapy.

Defective closure of diabetic foot ulcers is associated with higher risk of wound recurrence

Results from a new study of diabetic foot ulcers and the risk of wound recurrence can help health care workers measure the likelihood that the wound will reopen in the future. These findings are likely to lead to further studies aimed at decreasing amputation rates for the tens of millions of people with diabetes in the United States.

Synthetic hinge could hold key to revolutionary “smart” insulin therapy

For people with diabetes who are insulin dependent, glycemic control is a full-time job. But what if their medication could do the work for them—an insulin whose activity in the bloodstream responds to the blood glucose levels and adjusts accordingly?
