Researcher quoted in article on diabetes connection with new cancer drugs

Dr. Juan Jaume

Dr. Juan Jaume, chief of the Division of Endocrinology and director of UToledo’s Center for Diabetes and Endocrine Research, was recently quoted in a Boston Globe/STAT article, “A lifesaver with a catch: Powerful new cancer drugs can trigger diabetes — and no one is certain why,” regarding his research on a new line of monoclonal antibodies for cancer treatment and their side effect of Type 1 diabetes.
Endocrinology reported on a case back in 2017 (one of the first five cases reported) and subsequently put together a project to study the natural history of autoimmune diabetes after cancer treatment with this new immunotherapy (IRB approved protocol currently running at both the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center and ProMedica Hickman Cancer Center).

The journalist from the Globe told Dr. Jaume he tracked down most relevant scientists on the subject and decided to interview Dr. Jaume on the brink of massive combined grant initiatives (NIH, JDRF, and Helmsley Charitable Trust).  Read the article here.
