about

Diabetes is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the developed world, and its prevalence elsewhere is on the increase. It affects in excess of 100 million people worldwide. Recent scientific advances have clarified our understanding of the causes and consequences of this devastating disease. These scientific developments are playing an increasingly important role in clinical practice and could well lead the way to the prevention of complications and even a cure for the disease. This significant new publication provides a summary and overview of the most recent scientific advances in diabetes research, and highlights the role of these developments in advancing clinical practice.
