Recent Advances in Treatments and Therapies

Research activity in the field of diabetes has increased greatly in recent years and current standard of care for type 2 diabetes consists of screening for elevated HbA1c levels or, in some cases, fasting plasma glucose, with diagnosis followed by management with lifestyle modifications. People with type 2 diabetes can achieve their target blood sugar levels with diet, exercise and proper medications or insulin therapy. Insulin, along with diet, is crucial to the survival of individuals with type 1 diabetes. Pancreatic islet allo-transplantation is a procedure in which islets from the donor pancreas are transferred into another person to treat type 1 diabetes and have been a promising cellular-based therapy.

The artificial pancreas is a machine which would monitor blood glucose levels using an array of sensors, and release insulin from a reservoir into the bloodstream, using an infusion pump, whenever it is required. Current gene therapy study highlights the transfer of insulin gene into other cells such as the liver, stomach, or intestines. Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) is performed by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach. The recent advances in nanomedicine include smart drugs which only activate when needed, nanoformulations for efficient drug delivery, engineered microbes which produce human hormones, and even nanorobots, which would move autonomously around the body acting as a boost, for our immune system, red blood cells, or many other biological systems.
