The story went viral, with the me...

Conclusion: We showed that decreased pancreatic perfusion did not relate to beta-cell dysfunction in early stages of T2DM development, but it was related to VAT, insulin resistance, and higher fasting glycemia. Furthermore, lower pancreatic perfusion was related to VAT, insulin resistance, and higher fasting glycemia.Ann Nutr Metab

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe Institut Curie initiated a therapeutic patient education activity in 2011 by creating several programs. Coordinated and animated by different multidisciplinary teams, these functioned autonomously, with a different initial educational assessment for each one. This organization broke up the patient's educational pathway, and the educational offer, which sometimes proved to be redundant, most often corresponding to the needs shared by all cancer patients. The transversal therapeutic education unit allowed the ...
