The social networks intervention showed improved integration of patients within their existing networks leading to a greater reduction in HbA1c and blood glucose, as well as improved behaviour mediating outcomes (Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health)


Efficacy and Safety of Initial Combination Therapy With Alogliptin Plus Metformin Versus Either as Monotherapy in Drug-Naïve Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

Alogliptin plus metformin initial combination therapy was well tolerated yet more efficacious in controlling glycemia in drug-naïve T2DM patients than either as monotherapy (Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism)


HbA1c, fasting and 2 h plasma glucose in current, ex- and never-smokers: a meta-analysis

Across this heterogeneous group of studies, current smokers had a higher HbA1c and lower 2H-PG than never-smokers. This will affect the chances of smokers being diagnosed with diabetes (Diabetologia)


Current status of clinical islet transplantation

This brief overview presents recent progress in Islet transplantation. A concise historical perspective is provided, along with the latest efforts to improve islet engraftment, immune protection and ultimately, prolonged graft survival(World Journal of Transplantation)
