*  Aaron I. Vinik, MD, PhD, FCP, MACP, Author at Diabetes In Control. A free weekly diabetes newsletter for Medical Professionals.
Advisory Board Member) Dr. Vinik has brought international recognition to Virginia as a result of his research and recent discovery of a gene, which could prove to be a cure for diabetes. The gene, INGAP (islet neogenesis associated protein) is responsible, either alone or in combination with other factors, for stimulating immature cells in the diabetic pancreas to produce insulin. When INGAP protein was administered to diabetic hamsters it was shown to reverse diabetes in 40% to 50% of animals. Animal studies were followed by human, multi-center clinical studies in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, carried out by some of the most highly recognized investigators in the country; the results showed that even in type 1 diabetes an increase in C- peptide, (a measure of islet function), could be induced after 3 months of treatment ...
