1st World Congress On Interventional Therapies for Type 2 Diabetes

To ensure a timely, scientific and safe development of this emerging discipline it is necessary to balance enthusiasm with caution. This is possible only with the immediate attention and responsible, urgent actions from the global diabetes community."

Not surprisingly, the
