IUB-Pharmacology Laboratory, Department of Pharmacy published Literature Review in International Journal of Translational Medicine, Basel, Switzerland in collaboration with Melbourne Dementia Research Centre, University of Melbourne, Australia and Department of Biotechnology, Konkuk University, Korea
IUB Pharmacology Laboratory (IUB-PL), a research group in the Department of Pharmacy, School of Pharmacy and public health have published a journal paper on the 6th of October 2021, titled “Challenges in Diabetic Micro-Complication Management: Focus on Diabetic Neuropathy” in “International Journal of Translational Medicine”, a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, Basel, Switzerland.
In this project, IUB-PL collaborated with Dr. Md. Jakaria, Melbourne Dementia Research Centre (MDRC), University of Melbourne, Australia, and Md. Shofiul Azam, Department of Biotechnology, Konkuk University, Korea (KUK). This study highlighted the difficulties associated with the management of Diabetic Neuropathy. The research teams from IUB-PL reviewed on Background, Epidemiology, Risk factor and Mechanism of Diabetic Neuropathy and associated pain whereas, MDRC and KUK contributed to Diagnosis and management of neuropathic pain, especially with pharmacological treatment strategies and their future perspective. The recent literature review revealed that the progression of diabetes leads to macro and microvascular complications, including diabetic neuropathy, which is the most prevalent microvascular complication with diabetes. It has been evident that ~50% of diabetic patients develop neuropathy at a certain stage in their lifetime. Interestingly, two major subtypes (type I and II) of diabetes do not share the same epidemiology and pathophysiology of diabetic neuropathy; thus, their management or treatment strategies may vary from each other. The past few decades of research suggest that many etiological features, diagnosis, and management complexities depend on the type of diabetes. However, the underlying mechanism of neuropathy in type I and type II diabetes remains unclear. Thus, this review provides the current knowledge on successful assessment, management, and pharmacological biomarkers to explore the treatment and surpass current challenges in diabetic neuropathy.
This article consist of various literature review by considering the current scenario of Diabetic Micro-Complication such as Diabetic Neuropathy in the world. The endeavour was made possible by the dedication of members of the research group, Dr. Prawej Ansari, Assistant Professor and Prof. JMA Hannan, Dean, Department of Pharmacy, SPPH as well as their consistent efforts to contribute to improving the lifestyle of diabetes patients. This prestigious literature review demonstrates the IUB-PL, Department of Pharmacy’s enthusiastic commitment to high-quality research and contributing towards health sciences in some extent.
