News making rounds in July 2014 based on press release of the research institute [1] claims "Protein FGF1 Halts Diabetes in 'Single Injection'". Not only there isn't any treatment available based on the study, where a single injection was effective for a few days only, but no version of the protein without effects on cell growth on humans exists yet and needs to be developed before therapeutic use can even be considered. More notably, though a promising discovery, according to reports effect has so far only been demonstrated on FGF1-knockout mice that don't naturally produce said protein, and the results may not hold for humans with functioning FGF1 gene. However, from the viewpoint of genetic variation this means FGF1 and genes working together with it on a signaling pathway will be of interest for some variants of insulin resistance.
