Common blood pressure drug reverses diabetes in mice
 
01:31
New research conducted at UAB has shown that the common blood pressure drug verapamil completely reverses diabetes in animal models. Now, thanks to a three-year, $2.1 million grant from the JDRF, UAB researchers will begin conducting a potentially groundbreaking clinical trial in 2015 to see if it can do the same in humans.

U.S. Air Force and UAB team up to save lives

Col. Jon Winkler, M.D., a trauma surgeon and the team commander. But rather than being stationed at a stateside Air Force base where most military hospitals are primary care facilities, this team is helping create a new definition of readiness -- they're also full-fledged members of the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Level I trauma center, where more than 3,000 patients are seen each year with injuries -- from car wrecks, accidents or crime -- that mimic what the team would see in battle.

Treating Depression Without Drugs
 
02:07
BlazerCast for June 29, 2010: UAB is the first medical provider in the state to offer a new, cutting-edge treatment for depression. Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or rTMS, is the first and only device of its kind to be cleared for the treatment of depression by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The non-invasive device delivers highly focused, MRI-strength magnetic pulses to a particular area of the brain that is linked to depression. It is indicated for patients with depression who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication.

UAB opens new clinic for adult spina bifida patients
 
02:03
Once upon a time — not so very long ago — there were few doctors outside the ranks of pediatricians who treated adults with cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome or spina bifida. That's because there were few adult patients with those congenital conditions. Most died in childhood or in their teen years. Very few survived to adulthood. That has changed. Advances in science and medicine have led to dramatic increases in life span for patients with these conditions. Within the past few years, the University of Alabama at Birmingham has opened adult clinics for cystic fibrosis and Down syndrome. The most recent adult-transition clinic is for adult patients with spina bifida.
