- "Abstract: A process is disclosed for controlling inflammatory tissue access through release of neuropeptides, such as substance P (sP), to insulin-responsive sensory neurons, whereby simultaneous control of insulin sensitivity/resistance is manifested. In models of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, sensory afferents, in particular TRPV1, have fundamental roles in insulin/glucose homeostasis, islet physiology and autoimmune tissue inflammation."
