Medinova research into Type 2 diabetes

Clinical research is a vital weapon in the war against conditions such as diabetes. Treatments used to manage illnesses and diseases today are the result of decades of ongoing research to enable patients to live longer and fuller lives.

Diabetes was the focus of World Health Day, an annual event organised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) which took place this year on 7 April. The WHO selected diabetes as the main focus because of the rapid increase in many countries across the world and because Type 2 of the disease – which accounts for 90% of the cases worldwide – is largely preventable by making simple lifestyle changes.

London-based clinical research specialist MeDiNova is currently undertaking three studies to test the effectiveness of new treatments for Type 2 diabetes.
The attention being given to the disease clearly demonstrates the importance which is being attributed to finding more effective treatment measures as the battle goes on to get to grips with the ever growing disease.

MeDiNova operates three clinics in the London area and is seeking volunteers to take part in the trials. Those who take part will benefit from close monitoring of their condition and regular examinations such as blood tests, urinalysis, ECGs, blood pressure and physical examinations.
