Latest diabetes research book released


New book on latest diabetes research

17 January 2014

CTC diabetes researchers have contributed to an important new book, Lipoproteins in Diabetes Mellitus, which details the many changes wrought by insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus on lipid and lipoprotein metabolism.

Diabetes mellitus has become epidemic on a global scale, and millions of new cases are diagnosed every year. The CTC is part of worldwide efforts to understand the mechanisms and improve the treatment of diabetes.

Alicia Jenkins, Professor of Diabetes and Vascular Medicine at the CTC, and head of the CTC's Diabetes and Biomarker Research, is the lead editor of the book.

The book is available from Springer: Jenkins A, Toth PP, Lyons TJ. Lipoproteins in Diabetes Mellitus. New York: Springer; 2014.
