Mexican scientists are developing stem cell therapies to improve the health of people with diabetes, a disease affecting 12 million people in Mexico.
On the eve of World Diabetes Day anniversary on November 14, researchers at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, Víctor Julián Valdés Rodríguez, told reporters today that they are studying several models of vito and in vivo. High glucose can lead to morbid epigenetic memory, and if any drug can eradicate it, it can return to health.
"This study, including stem cells, can help design new therapies that greatly improve the health of people with diabetes," said a biomedical expert.
The cells were incubated with high glucose and then returned to normal glucose, which led the experts to induce metabolic memory in vitro.
In this "memory" model, we try to characterize not only the expression of genes but also the changes in DNA compression that establish welfare memories.
"I am interested in evaluating whether pharmacologic treatment can give some benefit to these mice to confirm their efficacy in the mice if the progeny genetic memory is erased and the pathological condition can be reduced"
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), one in every 11 people has diabetes worldwide.
