Abbott ’ s FreeStyle Libre glucose monitoring app launches in Europe
Abbott (NYSE:ABT) said today that it launched an app for its FreeStyle Libre glucose monitoring system in Europe that can be used with both iPhone and Android smartphones. The mobile app is designed to give people with diabetes direct access to their glucose data on their smartphones. Without the app, FreeStyle Libre users have to carry a separate, handheld device to scan the system’s sensor for a glucose reading. Get the full story at our sister site, Drug Delivery Business News.

The optimal synthesis conditions of CTS-SeNPs were obtained by orthogonal experiments. Besides, the size, morphology and stability of CTS-SeNPs were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and dynamic light scattering (...
Conclusion These results suggested that [18F]FDDNP is a potential tracer for pancreatic islet amyloid PET imaging.
Authors: Ruge T, Carlsson AC, Ingelsson E, Risérus U, Sundström J, Larsson A, Lind L, Ärnlöv J Abstract OBJECTIVE: Circulating levels of endostatin are elevated in many underlying conditions leading to heart failure such as hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease and ischemic heart disease. Yet, the association between endostatin and the incidence of heart failure has not been reported previously in the community. DESIGN: We investigated the longitudinal association between serum endostatin levels and incident heart failure in two community-based cohorts of elderly: Prospective Inve...
A study of brain CT scans of patients with memory problems found that diabetes and smoking were linked to hippocampal calcifications.
ConclusionsBoth radiotracers demonstrate appropriate imaging properties for the MCHR1. However, the pronounced metabolic stability as well as superior selectivity and affinity of [11C]SNAP-7941 underlines the decisive superiority over [18F]FE@SNAP.
A Dutch study of almost 2,000 older people found those who smoked - or were diabetic - were more likely to have these 'calcifications' on CT scans.
Researchers from the Netherlands examined the brain CT scans of patients with...Read more on AuntMinnie.comRelated Reading: Iterative recon halves CT radiation dose for calcium score Deep learning can quantify CAC on low-dose CT CT CAC scoring tops age for predicting heart disease risk JACC: CT CAC scoring helps screen for CAD Coronary calcium CT scans predict mortality
