Scientists at the University of North Carolina used clusters of nanoparticles to control levels of blood sugar in diabetic mice. The particles, composed of natural products, are injected under the skin and release insulin when blood sugar is high. "We expect that one injection can actively control blood sugar for at least one week," said Zhen Gu, lead author of the study, which was published in the journal ACS Nano.
