Nanomedicines set to revolutionise the treatment of diabetes

The treatment of diabetes could be transformed by using nanotechnology to create a 'smart delivery' system that regulates glucose levels from within the body – effectively replicating the work of the pancreatic cells that produce insulin.

Nanomedicine is booming. And where better to focus research efforts than on a disease that affects the lives of more than 350 million people around the world – nearly 4 million in the UK alone – and which is on the increase: diabetes.
