A recent article reveals a new idea for designing new drug candidates for Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Written by Ngoc Doan Trang Nguyen and Ly Thi Le, the article offers new drug candidates to produce antidiabetic drugs against type 2 diabetes for Vietnamese people.
Doan Trang Nguyen works at Life Science Laboratory, Saigon Institute for Computational Science and Technology. Ly Thi Le comes from School of Biotechnology, Ho Chi Minh International University.
According to the author, it is very common in middle-aged people and involves such dangerous symptoms as increasing risk of stroke, obesity and heart failure.
As we heard in Vietnam, some herbal medication is used in diabetes treatment. However, it no unified optimum remedy for the disease yet exists. It also recognized that no production of antidiabetic drugs in the domestic market yet.
In the development of nanomedicine at the present time, drug design is considered as an innovative tool for researchers to study the mechanisms of diseases at the molecular level.
