  • New type 2 diabetes biomarker identified
    Type 2 diabetes accounts for around 90 percent of diabetes cases as well as being one of the major cardiovascular risk factors. Researchers have found an epigenetic mechanism implicated in the regulation of blood sugar. The results of this work could help identify patients at risk of developing diabetes, control treatment response, and generate possible future therapies for this disease.
