Members of the DOM contributed to a landmark international consensus report about precision diabetes medicine. Two hundred academic experts from 28 countries took part in this report under the banner of the Precision Medicine in Diabetes Initiative. It was supported by the American Diabetes Association, the European Association for the Study of Diabetes and the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
The report shows clear progress in implementing precision diabetes medicine, illuminating opportunities for its immediate or near-term clinical application. For example, precision medicine was shown to play an essential role in diagnosing and treating monogenic diabetes, as well as great potential in managing gestational diabetes. The report also shed light on numerous research gaps and the need for improved research methods.
Dr. Nestoras Mathioudakis, associate professor in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism and co-medical director of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Diabetes Prevention & Education Program, served as the co-chair of the Precision Prognostics for Cardiovascular Disease writing group in type 2 diabetes.
