We’re a talented group of scientists & entrepreneurs, but we are also people just like you, with loved ones who suffer from disease. MelliCell helps those we care about by understanding what is happening at a cellular level and creating products to deliver better treatments and overall improved health. Get to know who we are.
Current Research tools used for Adipose tissue analysis have limitations. MelliCell's groundbreaking technology give us the unique ability to develop adipose tissues thousands of times larger than conventional methods which allows more accurate mimicry of the size and behaviors of adipocytes in obese adults. The MelliCell platform enables discovery of therapeutic targets and leads, while reducing the time and money required for efficacy screening.
Diabetes Myths, Facts & Figures
Myth: Diabetes is a bigger problem in North America and Europe than the rest of the world.
Fact: more than 10% of people in the US have diabetes. That's shockingly high, but it ranks 59th worldwide behind Pacific Islands (e.g. 30% in the Marshall Islands), African (e.g. 22% in Sudan), Asian (e.g. 19% in Pakistan), and Latin American (e.g. 17% in Belize) countries.
Myth: We get type 2 diabetes because we eat too much.
Fact: We really don't know what causes diabetes and studies implicate everything from gut bacteria to microplastics to working the night shift.
Myth: Diabetes is easily reversed with diet and exercise.
Fact: While weight loss is beneficial to those of us who are overweight, eating less and exercising are unreliable for diabetes remission. For example, 3.5% of people experienced 4-year remission in this study: 10.1001/jama.2012.67929.
