A team of researchers at the University of British Columbia is developing something they say could be a game-changer for people living with diabetes.
Led by Dr. Anubhav Pratap-Singh, the team has made progress on an oral insulin tablet they think could replace injections – which more than 300,000 Canadians require multiple times every day. Pratap-Singh’s father is one of them, which is why he says he was motivated to pursue this research.
Although the tablet has not yet been tested on humans, a news release from the university says the results from a recent trial on rats shows promising potential.
