Now if you ask any one in a group of families in india which may be rural or cities you will find one or the other diabetic in their family. Even among young generation we are finding this disease which is dangerous development. This might be result of our life style without any exercise, food diets, etc…
The global projections by International Diabetes Federation (IDF) also show that India has a much lesser prevalence of the disease than most other countries including US.
IDF, which tracks the global spread of this scourge, says that by next year, the country will be home to 50.8 million diabetics, making it the world’s unchallenged diabetes capital. And the number is expected to go up to a whopping 87 million — 8.4% of the country’s adult population — by 2030.
The disease will prove costly for India, both in terms of lives lost and money wasted. In India, it will kill around 10.07 lakh people in the age group of 20-79 years every year — the majority being women (5.81 lakh) from 2010.
American Experts Turn Stem Cells Into Pancreatic And Intestinal Tissues
Washington: Stem cells can be transformed into the pancreatic cells needed to treat diabetes and into complex layers of intestinal tissue,scientists demonstrated in two experiments reported.
In one,a team turned immature sperm cells into pancreatic tissue,while another team turned embryonic stem cells into complex layers of intestinal tissue.Both studies show new ways to use stem cells,which are the body’s master cells and which can come from a variety of sources.
Ateam at Georgetown University in Washington worked with spermatogonial stem cells,master cells that give rise to sperm in men.Ian Gallicano and colleagues used germ-derived pluripotent stem cells,which are made from the spermatogonial stem cells.They nurtured these cells in the lab with compounds designed to make these cells start acting like pancreatic beta cells,which produce insulin.
When transplanted into diabetic mice,these cells produced insulin,acting like the pancreatic beta cells that the body mistakenly destroys in type-1 diabetes,Gallicano’s team told a meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology in Philadelphia.Currently,children and young adults diagnosed with type-1 diabetes must take insulin for life.
Gallicano said men’s own cells could be used as a source of their transplants,and he said perhaps the approach may work in women too.While these cells come from the human testis,the work here is not necessarily malecentric, they wrote.These fundamental aspects could easily be applied to the female counterpart,oocytes.
Separately,James Wells and colleagues at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Ohio turned two different kinds of stem cell into complex layers of intestinal tissue.Writing in Nature,Wells’s team showed they could transform these cells into what they called organoids.These organoids can be used to study intestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases and short-gut syndromes and perhaps could be used to treat them someday,Wells’s team said.
