The FDA issued a Class I recall for certain Medtronic MiniMed 600 series insulin pumps that give incorrect insulin dosing. So far there have been 2,175 injuries and one death reported. Combining a DYRK1A inhibitor molecule with a GLP-1 receptor agonist spurred human beta cell proliferation in vitro at rates of up to 6 percent a day. "With these drugs, if we increase beta cell replication rate to rates that will restore beta cell mass to normal, you'd have enough beta cells to fix your diabetes," said study author Andrew Stewart, MD, director of the Mount Sinai Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
