Neuropathy: Relief for diabetics with painful condition

5 marzo 2015

Those with painful diabetic neuropathy who received two low dose rounds of a non-viral gene therapy called VM202 had significant improvement of their pain that lasted for months, researchers report. «Right now there is no medication that can reverse neuropathy,» the study’s first author said. «Our goal is to develop a treatment. If we can show with more patients that this is a very real phenomenon, then we can show we have not only improved the symptoms of the disease, namely the pain, but we have actually improved function.»
