Mouse hormone boost beta cell production

As reported in Science Magazine, and subsequently by Diabetes Daily, a newly discovered hormone in mice prompts the rodents to boost their production of pancreatic β cells, the ones that make insulin and are missing or not productive enough in patients with diabetes. The hormone, called betatrophin, is made by people as well, and its discoverers hope that the effect in the human pancreas might be similar. That could make betatrophin a potential new therapy for diabetes. Read the full story here.
