Support a start-up from a PHYM laboratory
Type 1 diabetes is a disease in which the immune system destroys the beta cells of the pancreas, responsible for insulin production. Currently, the only treatment available consists of daily injections of artificial insulin, which are far from optimal and cannot avoid the risks of hypoglycemia.
Prof. Roberto Coppari and one of his scientific collaborators Giorgio Ramadori have recently created a start-up, the Diatheris start-up, to advance the clinical development of a revolutionary therapy based on the S100A9 protein that could improve blood sugar control, while avoiding the most harmful side effects of insulin.
