  • Broccoli in focus when new substance against diabetes has been identified

    [15 Jun 2017] Researchers have identified an antioxidant ¿ richly occurring in broccoli ¿ as a new antidiabetic substance. A patient study shows significantly lower blood sugar levels in participants who ate broccoli extract with high levels of sulforaphane.

  • Newly discovered disease mechanism for type 2 diabetes

    [6 Jun 2017] A newly discovered mechanism behind reduced insulin production in type 2 diabetes is now being presented. In an article in Nature Communications, researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy describe how insulin-producing cells regress in their development, become immature, and do not work properly. A finding that opens the doors to new clinical treatments.

  • Improved accuracy when testing cancer drugs

    [2 Jun 2017] Method to more accurately test anti-cancer drugs have now been developed at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg. The method paves the way to much earlier assessment of who benefits from a specific drug and who does not.

  • Taking stock early on is crucial for working late in life

    [30 May 2017] Do you want to keep working until you're 70, or even 75? Then, it's good to give this some thought before you turn 50. New research now calls for early planning, and at the same time shoots down prejudices against working seniors.

  • The gut microbiota plays a key role in treatment with classic diabetes medication

  • Success in the 3D Bioprinting of Cartilage

    [20 Apr 2017] A team of researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy has managed to generate cartilage tissue by printing stem cells using a 3D-bioprinter. The fact that the stem cells survived being printed in this manner is a success in itself. In addition, the research team was able to influence the cells to multiply and differentiate to form chondrocytes (cartilage cells) in the printed structure.

  • Decrease in cardiovascular diseases benefits persons with diabetes

    [13 Apr 2017] The incidence of cardiovascular diseases in Sweden has decreased sharply since the late 1990s.
