  • May 28, 2009

Congratulations to Sreenivasa Rao Kondapally Seshesai and Sebhat Erqou on their co-authored article in last week’s issue of The Lancet, one of the UK’s leading medical journals. Their work, on the effect of intensive control of glucose on cardiovascular outcomes and death in patients with diabetes mellitus, found that overall, intensive as opposed to standard glycaemic control significantly reduces coronary events without an increased risk of death.
