Research by ClinMet Scientific Founder and Colleagues Point to Enzyme that Restores Function in Diabetic Kidney Disease
Date:10/31/2013

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ClinMet today announced that researchers from The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and colleagues have published new findings that could fundamentally change understanding of how diabetes-related diseases develop – and how they might be better treated. A prevailing theory suggests that mitochondrial function is overactive in diabetes and leads to complications such as kidney, eye, nerve and possibly cardiovascular disease. However, these new studies suggest that real-time production of superoxide – a marker of mitochondrial activity – is actually reduced, rather than elevated, in diabetic kidney disease and potentially other organs as well. Furthermore, stimulating mitochondrial production, function and superoxide levels led to improvement in diabetic kidney disease.

ClinMet has an exclusive license to use kidney metabolomics findings by Dr. Sharma and his team in drug development and other applications, based on patents filed by UC San Diego.

"These new data suggest that a major theory on the role of mitochondrial function in diabetic complications has to be questioned," said Dr. Sharma. "In particular, our findings that an increase in mitochondrial function and superoxide production is associated with improvement in diabetic complications suggest that approaches t
