IUBMB Virtual Issue on Diabetes
Diabetes Mellitus: A Bitter Disease with a Sweet Name – An IUBMB Journals Joint Virtual Issue
Edited by IUBMB Journals Editors-in-Chief Drs. Angelo Azzi, Gianfranco Gilardi,Phillip Ortiz, William Whelan , and Jian-Jiang Zhong.
Diabetes, either type 1 diabetes which is due to poor insulin release, or type 2 diabetes which is the consequence of ineffective use of insulin, is one of the most significant challenges to human health. The increased blood and urine glucose (hence the name mellitus, sweet) is a major cause of cardiovascular disease, adult blindness, non-traumatic amputation and end stage kidney failure. In addition, it is believed to increase the danger of neurocognitive loss and frailty and is associated with an increased frequency of most forms of cancer. Therefore, its economic effects are enormous. The current global occurrence of diabetes is ~ 9% among adults, and it is the 7th leading cause of death.
Such a global occurrence requires a comprehensive approach, necessary to understand the molecular aspects of the disease which can be translated into prevention and therapies.The four IUBMB journals represent an overarching way of spreading basic scientific research as well as stimulating education and fundamental technological innovation in the field. The articles collected in this virtual issue have been published during the last two years in IUBMB Life, BioFactors, Biotechnology and Applied Biochemistry, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education: they exemplify the contribution of basic and technological researches as well as education to the solution of such a global threaten to human health, diabetes.It is our pleasure to present them in this compendium as we hope it will lead to a greater awareness of the efforts of our scientific community in dealing with this disease and that you will use these articles in your research and teaching.
