Treating Disease with Sugars
February 27 - 28, 2015 | 10905 Road to the Cure, San Diego CA 92121
Simple sugars can treat patients
with rare diseases, but these
supplements can also impact
aging, immune function, cancer
and development of diabetes.
Clinical trials are underway, but
the underlying basic science
remains obscure.
