Coxsackievirus B1 Is Associated With Induction of ß-Cell Autoimmunity That Portends Type 1 Diabetes

These results support previous observations suggesting that the group B Coxsackieviruses are associated with the risk of type 1 diabetes (Diabetes)

Synthesis and volume phase transition of concanavalin A-based glucose-responsive nanogels

Glucose-responsive polymer nanogels that can undergo a reversible and rapid volume phase transition in response to the fluctuation in blood glucose concentration have the potential to regulate delivery of insulin mimicking pancreas activity. We report here such a glucose-responsive polymer nanogel, which is made of Concanavalin A (ConA) interpenetrated in a chemically-crosslinked network of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (poly(NIPAM)) (Polymer Chemistry)
