Professor Moshe Phillip (Tel Aviv University, Israel) talks to medwireNews Focus about a wireless fully automated closed-loop system for the control of diabetes, and how it provides a potent tool for lowering the rate of nocturnal hypoglycaemia and improving overall glucose control.

Professor Krishna Chatterjee (Professor of Endocrinology, University of Cambridge, UK) talks to medwireNews Focus about new forms of thyroid resistance that are particularly relevant to paediatric endocrine practice, and how the identification of these disorders could impact on future therapy decisions.
