New OMRF research may lessen diabetic effects on the heart
New research from the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation might hold promise for reversing changes to the heart caused by diabetes.
“Getting them closer to a prediabetic condition could save lives,” Humphries said.
The next step is to find exactly which proteins in the heart cells are being modified and to understand what conditions might allow modifications to be reversed.
Funding for the research was provided by the National Center for Research Resources, a part of the National Institutes of Health.
Greg Elwell is a public affairs specialist with Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.
