News, information and tips for keeping

tootsies toasty as the temperatures drop. N

ews came recently

from the University

of Exeter Medical

School about the

discovery of a healing

molecule that could reduce the risk of

amputations for people with diabetes.

The molecule, which is part of the body's

tissue repair system, could help to treat

non-healing wounds and injuries, such

as occur in some people with diabetes.

A study led by the universities of Exeter

and Bath, and published in the journal

Antioxidants and Redox Signalling has

made great strides in understanding

how the molecule deoxyribose-1-

phosphate stimulates the formation of

new blood vessels. Dr Giordano Pula, of

the University of Exeter Medical School,

led the team. He says, "We're very

excited to provide new insights into how

this crucial molecule works to stimulate

the formation of blood vessels in people.

We now hope to be able to use this

knowledge to trigger the formation of

new blood vessels in patients

Dr Kotryna Temcinaite, Research

Communications Officer, at Diabetes

UK commented on this news saying,

"It's really important that we find new

treatments for foot problems in people

with diabetes, as doing so could help

prevent debilitating, devastating and

costly amputations. This study helps us

better understand how wounds heal,

and could help the development of new

treatments for diabetes foot problems in

the future."

Over at IDDT, the charity has also

produced a booklet called Diabetes -

Looking After Your Feet, designed to help

people to know what to look for and when
