A major health challenge for people living in tropical and subtropical regions of the developing world is the “cold chain,” the need to refrigerate certain vaccines and drugs, particularly insulin. Studies from the World Health Organization show that 180 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes, and that number is expected to double by 2030. A team of researchers at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have made a discovery that could help patients with diabetes improve management of their condition.
