Milestone Achieved! Our First Major Joint Publication is Out!

Thrilled to announce the first major publication from our MELISSA project, titled "The effect of bolus advisors on glycaemic parameters in adults with diabetes on intensive insulin therapy: a systematic review with meta-analysis". This paper represents the culmination of 18 months of collaborative effort among MELISSA researchers.

This systematic review with meta-analysis aimed to provide a comprehensive synthesis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and prospective cohort studies investigating the effects of currently available bolus advisors on glycaemic parameters in adults with diabetes on intensive insulin treatment.

This publication is a testament to the power of cross-disciplinary collaboration and the shared passion to bring diabetes research to the next level. A huge thank you to all the incredible researchers involved:
