Overview

About 17 million Americans suffer from diabetes mellitus, a disease caused by defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both, and also a leading cause of kidney failure, blindness, and amputations. In Diabetes Mellitus: Methods and Prools, leading researchers and clinical investigators describe their cutting-edge techniques for studying these defects at both the molecular and biochemical levels. Written in step-by-step detail to ensure ready reproducibility and robust results, these techniques allow investigators, both novices and those already active in the field, to study every major facet of insulin production and action. Each prool includes an introduction to the technique, an explanation of its application, and a list of materials. Practical notes discuss how to avoid pitfalls, as well as how to adapt the methods to your own research.

Cutting-edge and highly practical, Diabetes Mellitus: Methods and Prools provides basic scientists and clinical researchers, both experienced investigators and those new to the field, all the critical tools needed for the productive study of diabetes mellitus today.
