Numb Together

Bone marrow cells deaden neurons in diabetes

Abstract: Like bullies who move into peaceful neighborhoods and cause trouble, bone marrow cells fuse with and short-circuit neurons in diabetic rodents, new work reveals. The findings uncover a new trigger for diabetes-related nerve damage and suggest that diverting the errant bone marrow cells might alleviate the complication.
