Researcher reported the efficacy of gene therapy in type 2 diabetes and obesity in mice


           The researcher reported experimental results in gene therapy technology in mice which showed efficacy for type 2 diabetes and obesity treatment with no long-term complications or relapse. This experiment used a gene therapy carrier in healthy mice which prevented weight gain from age including insulin resistance. Hence, when mice aged they remained healthy. This discovery was made at Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain and the research was led by Professor Fatima Bos.
