Mediterranean diet’s anti-diabetes benefits revealed
The potential market for type 2 diabetes treatments is enormous despite a crowded field with many medicines from several different classes from which to choose. An estimated 90 percent to 95 percent of the more than 370 million people living with diabetes worldwide have type 2, according to the International Diabetes Federation. Many type 2 diabetes patients require two or more medications to get their blood sugar down to target levels. Farxiga was tested in combination with several other widely used medicines. “Farxiga provides an additional treatment option for millions of Americans with type 2 diabetes,” Curtis Rosebraugh, of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, said in a statement. The FDA had initially rejected the Astra and Bristol-Myers drug in early 2012 over concerns about possible cancer and heart risks.

Salas-Salvado is the study’s lead author and a professor of nutrition at Rovira i Virgili University and the head of the Department of Nutrition at the Hospital de Sant Joan de Reus in Spain. Previous research, including another study from Salas-Salvado and colleagues , suggested Mediterranean diets may be protective against diabetes. Mediterranean diets are generally high in vegetables, fiber-rich grains, legumes, fish and plant-based sources of unsaturated fat – particularly olive oil and nuts. They are low in red meat and high-fat dairy, prime sources of saturated fat. In addition to being touted as beneficial to people with heart disease, Mediterranean diets are believed to have components that reduce inflammation throughout the body and may have some impact on diabetes.

Farxiga is a once-a-day tablet designed to help diabetes patients eliminate excess sugar via their urine. That differs from older drugs that decrease the amount of sugar absorbed from food and stored in the liver. The drug is the second product approved in the U.S. from the new class of medicines known as SGLT2 drugs. In March the FDA approved Johnson & Johnson’s Invokana, which also works by eliminating excess sugar through patients’ urine. The agency cleared Farxiga tablets for patients with type 2 diabetes, which affects about 24 million people in the U.S.

“Diabetes is a growing problem worldwide. Our research shows that very low doses of anticancer drugs used to treat lymphoma — so-called lysine deacetylase inhibitors — can reset the immune response to not attack the insulin-producing cells. We find fewer immune cells in the pancreas, and more insulin is produced when we give the medicine in the drinking water to mice that would otherwise develop type 1 diabetes,” says postdoc Dan Ploug Christensen, who is the first author on the article and responsible for the part of the experimental work carried out in Professor Thomas Mandrup-Poulsen’s laboratory at the Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. The ground-breaking findings have just been published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. From mice to men “This type of medicine is already being used against certain cancers, but we used doses which are 100 times lower than those used in cancer treatment and which have been shown to be safe in children with certain rheumatic diseases,” says Thomas Mandrup-Poulsen. “Our results are a step towards developing a preventive treatment for type 1 diabetes,” says Dan Ploug Christensen. “It works by blocking the molecules that send the harmful inflammation signals into the insulin-producing cells.
