Type 2 diabetes (too much sugar in the blood) is a disease that is thought to affect 360 million people worldwide, and can shorten life expectancy by 10 years. For this reason the concept of a drug that may help reduce Type 2 diabetes by increasing the amount of sugar removed from the body with urine has great promise. Early results suggest this drug could reduce mortality, blood sugar, blood pressure and even help with weight loss.

For all of these searchers, we promote Cluster Searching not only as a primary search tool, but also as a second opinion engine. Essentially we suggest that users run the best prior art they have found through Cluster Searching to see what else they can find.
