Releasing the Pressure

Eliminating kidney protein in mice relieves swelling spurred by diabetes drugs

R. John Davenport

Mice with a particular genetic alteration don't suffer from fluid accumulation, a dangerous side effect triggered by some antidiabetes drugs. The findings might help researchers fine-tune therapies.
