Beta Cell Replacement and Islet Transplantation:diabetes-self-mgmt.com:"Compared to the daily routines and challenges of living with diabetes, research may seem too esoteric and far away to be of interest. But research has brought us many tools and techniques that people with diabetes use every day, and the next few years promise a rapid transition of new ideas from the laboratory to our daily lives."
http://www.diabetes-self-mgmt.com/

New Research On Islet Cells Has Important Implications for Diabetes:joslin.org:"New research from scientists at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston and their collaborators in New York, France and Tennessee reveals that a molecular pathway once thought to be critical in the early development of insulin producing islet b-cells may not play an important role in this function after all — but instead may be important in the ability of these cells to respond to glucose. This new insight may have important implications for scientists hoping to identify ways to stimulate the growth of insulin-producing b-cells to treat type 1 diabetes, as well as for scientists seeking to understand the multiple defects that result in type 2 diabetes. This research is featured in the May issue of Nature Genetics, and appears online on the journal's website: http://www.nature.com/ng/. Blood sugar levels are controlled by the hormone insulin, and this hormone is made in specialized cells of the body called islet b-cells. In diabetes — a disease that affects an estimated 17 million Americans and is a leading cause of blindness, heart disease, stroke, nerve damage, impotence, and limb disease leading to amputation — these islets are damaged or malfunction, leading to alterations in the ability of islet cells to release insulin."
http://www.joslin.org/news/islet_research03-02.shtml

Pancreas research paves way for diabetes treatment:Vanderbilt Medical Center:"Before the pancreas is a pancreas, it is just two tiny bumps — two groups of cells sprouting from a central tube. What makes these cells bud off from the main group? How do they go on to make all the cell types of the mature pancreas? These are the kinds of questions that drive the research efforts of Christopher V. E. Wright, D. Phil. and colleagues. The answers could pave the way toward limitless supplies of pancreatic cells for transplantation therapy of diabetes. “It has been established that islet cell transplantation can solve the diabetes problem,” said Wright, professor of Cell & Developmental Biology and director of the Developmental Biology program, referring to studies carried out in Edmonton, Canada and elsewhere. “The problem is having a suitable and sufficient source of transplantation material."
http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/reporter/?ID=2214

Diabetes control and Complications trial (DCCT):National diabetes information clearinghouse:"The DCCT is a clinical study conducted from 1983 to 1993 by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The study showed that keeping blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible slows the onset and progression of eye, kidney, and nerve diseases caused by diabetes. In fact, it demonstrated that any sustained lowering of blood glucose helps, even if the person has a history of poor control. The largest, most comprehensive diabetes study ever conducted, the DCCT involved 1,441 volunteers with type 1 diabetes and 29 medical centers in the United States and Canada. Volunteers had diabetes for at least 1 year but no longer than 15 years. They also were required to have no, or only early signs of, diabetic eye disease"
http://www.niddk.nih.gov/health/diabetes/pubs/dcct1/dcct.htm

Directed Diabetes Research Working Group goes for the jugular:islet.org:"As the DRWG is charged by congress with the task of setting the diabetes research priorities for the NIH through the year 2010, their direction and focus is very important to people with diabetes. I think we can conclude that, overall, the goals articulated at this meeting were positive. It was encouraging to see cell therapy receiving some of the attention and emphasis it deserves. In speaking at length with a prominent researcher (who shall remain anonymous unless he wishes to be identified) about what drives the advance of research, he spoke of a pervasive behavior among researchers. This behavior may help explain the lack of progress in diabetes treatment over the past decades. He said that many researchers are comfortable nibbling at the edges of a chronic disease, but are hesitant to "go for the jugular". If we imagine diabetes as a deadly predatory creature -- the diasaurus rex, for want of a better name -- running amok through our lives, there is now a huge industry defending against the most immediate effects of this creature's rampages. The researchers and their sponsors have become so accustomed to the creature, that they will generally only takes swipes at its extremities, but are reluctant to risk an attack on it's well-defended jugular. Perhaps the time is ripe to support those researchers who are willing to attack the jugular of the diasaurus rex, and finally lay the monster to rest."

Altered fruit flies offer clues to diabetes treatment:stanford.edu:"Researchers at the medical center have created fruit flies with a condition that mimics human diabetes. Although it's a big evolutionary leap from flies to humans, the researchers say their tiny diabetic "patients" will help scientists understand how insulin-releasing cells develop -- a first step toward replacing cells lost in human diabetes. "The idea is that the more you know about normal development the better chance you have to make stem cells develop into insulin-producing cells," said Eric Rulifson, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in developmental biology and lead author of a paper published in the May 10 issue of Science"

Diabetes Research Institute Foundation:drinet.org:"The Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) is an international center dedicated exclusively to the cure and treatment of diabetes. The result of parents of children with diabetes who banded together more than twenty-five years ago to focus scientific attention on this disease, the DRI today stands as a world leader in innovative cure-related research. An academic center of excellence at the University of Miami School of Medicine, the DRI's commitment to improving the lives of children has resulted in landmark advances in several areas of diabetes research and patient care, including gestational diabetes, transplant immunology, and islet cell isolation and transplantation."

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation:JDRF:"From its beginnings as a small group of hopeful parents funding individual research grants, we are now thousands of dedicated volunteers supporting researchers working on a business-world, road-mapped approach to a cure. Our research program is structured along a business-world, road mapping model, designed to bring scientific advances more quickly from the research lab to use by people with diabetes. JDRF model sets: A proactive approach to the scientific research community, with JDRF presenting the priority problems it wants addressed. A flexible, fast-track review of applications for research projects. A results-oriented process of evaluation, with agreed-upon goals and endpoints."

Diabetes Research Laboratories:DRL:"The Diabetes Research Laboratories (DRL), founded by Professor Robert Turner in 1976 have become become one of the largest and most successful clinical research units in Europe. Following Professor Turner's sudden death in August 1999, Professor Rury Holman (Head of the Diabetes Trials Unit) has been appointed as Acting Head of the DRL until such time as new appointment can be made. Situated in the Radcliffe Infirmary, the DRL forms an integral part of the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism (OCDEM)."

The projects we support cover the spectrum from islet cell biology and transplantation techniques to studies in education and behavioral issues. And we are quickly increasing our support for research, providing $18 million for diabetes research in 1999, and approximately $27 million in 2001"
