Type 2 Diabetes – PSARL Gene discovered that may lead to a Cure

Type 2 Diabetes – PSARL Gene discovered that may lead to a Cure

Eating Healthy Foods

According to an Australian newspaper The Herald Sun, a group of Victorian scientists discovered the gene that is responsible that contributes to the development of Type 2 Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is not just an epidemic in the United States.  Australia is greatly impacted with 100,000 newly diagnosed patients each year.  The reason for the dramatic increase of type 2 diabetes is due to the dietary choices and lack of exercise.

ChemGenex Pharmaceuticals scientists from Geelong would want to develop a DNA diagnostic test that would be on the Australian market in 2 years.  They could test the DNA by taking a swab to the inside of the patient’s mouth. 

 

The PSARL gene would be detected and give a preliminary warning that they would be at risk for diabetes.  By knowing that they will be at a greater risk the scientists hope that people will change their dietary and physical activity before the onset of type 2 diabetes.

The pharmaceutical company also wants to develop and test gene therapy to help treat the defective PSARL gene.  The PSARL gene is on chromosome 3q and is located in muscles.

 

Currently there is a lot of promising research for the cure of type 1 diabetes.  This gives some hope for the future cure and treatment options for type 2 diabetes.  Preventive medicine in the case of type 2 diabetes is extremely important in order to delay the development of the disease.
