Attacking type 2 diabetes from a new direction with encouraging results

Type 2 diabetes affects  an estimated   28  million  Americans  according  to  the  American  Diabetes association, but medications now  available  only  treat  symptoms,  not  the root  cause of the disease.    New research from Rutgers shows promising evidence that     a  modified form of a different drug, niclosamide     now used to eliminate    intestinal parasites   may       hold the key to battling the disease at its source.
