Ludwar Lab presents at the meeting of the of the American Diabetes Association

Bjoern Ludwar presented a new study on the use of fingerprint symmetry (dermatoglyphics) for the early detection of diabetes mellitus at the 77th Scientific Session of the American Diabetes Association in San Diego.

Dr. Ludwar, Longwood student Saarah M. Holayel, and their collaborators from Ohio University and Touro University CA looked at an ethnically diverse population from Northern California (41% White/Caucasian, 26.5% African American, 14.5% Asian American, 18% Hispanic) to see if they can confirm the findings of their previous study which suggested a correlation between how similar the fingerprints on right/left hand are and the risk of suffering from either type I or II diabetes mellitus.
