Type 1 diabetes : a research update from Inserm

From the discovery of insulin in 1921 to the first ever pancreas transplants in the late 1960s, the recent history of type 1 diabetes research has brought scientific and medical advances which have transformed patient prognosis and quality of life. Here at Inserm, eleven teams distributed among nine units contribute their own endeavors. Their work primarily involves the characterization of pancreatic cells and improving knowledge of the disease (risk factors, genetic susceptibility, pathophysiological mechanisms) and its complications. One of these teams, based in Lille, is exploring islet transplantation, a promising technique discussed in a new publication in Diabetes Care[1] and in an update in The Lancet[2]. Other very interesting avenues currently being explored include immunotherapy and the development of artificial pancreases.

1 in 2 French people suffers from joint pain

According to the results of an IFOP survey, “Les Français et les Rhumatismes” (Rheumatic Diseases and the French), conducted by Inserm and “Ensemble Contre les Rhumatismes” (Together Against Rheumatic Diseases), 93% of French people report having already suffered from joint pain[1] and one in two were suffering from it at the time of responding to the survey. This joint pain strongly affects their daily life. Quality of sleep and the ability to perform leisure activities are the two aspects of daily life that are most affected, ahead of working life and family life.

Intellectual Disabilities, a collective expert review by Inserm

According to the World Health Organisation and other recognised authorities, intellectual disability (ID) refers to an intelligence deficit (significantly reduced ability to understand new or complex information and learning and applying new skills) as well as limitations in adaptive functioning[1]. These limitations appear during the developmental period. Intellectual disability is common and affects about 1 to 2% of the population. The recent knowledge explosion regarding the causes of ID, as well as the underlying cognitive and adaptive processes, provides a better insight into the ability of people with intellectual disabilities to functional and develops appropriate strategies for learning, care and support

Manaslu 2015: A scientific expedition at over 5,000 m altitude

For 5 weeks, 5 international research teams will conduct a scientific expedition in Nepal, in the heart of the Himalayas, close to the summit of Mount Manaslu (8,156 m). The French component of the expedition, coordinated by a researcher from Inserm (Inserm/Université Joseph Fourier), will conduct an original project on the impact of altitude on the brain and heart, and on sleep disturbances induced by altitude. The French researchers will also study the benefit of a mask specially designed to improve oxygenation in combating the symptoms of acute mountain sickness. To do this, 50 volunteers will accompany them on this 5,000 m high trek.
