Slime from frog skin can improve diabetes treatment. Researchers fromUniversity of Ulster and United Arab Emirates University studied SouthAmerican frog named Pseudis paradoxa.
Frog’s skin secretes slime that contains pseudin-2 molecule toprotect from infections. The molecule was also found to stimulateinsulin production.
Scientists developed synthetic version ofpseudin molecule and tested it in laboratory. It boosted insulinstimulation process and was much more effective than the naturalmolecule. The study also showed frog therapy is completely safe.
The study needs further research to have the method tested on human patients. In case of success, the study will open a totally new type ofdiabetes treatment called incretin mimetics.
