Adjuvant treatment of diabetes with a local tea from micronesia : delal a kar (Palau)
This treatment is used when diabetes control is not sufficient with conventional treatmentsas is often the case. We conducted a set of studies to assess the effect of the tea Delal a kar. This was the first research project undertaken by PAIR (the Pacific Academic Institute of Research) in Palau. PAIR was established to allow young researchers from the rather isolated islands to work in and for their country, especially in managing and protecting its natural resources.
Following an agreement between PAIR, the University of Geneva and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, these two Swiss institutions take part in the research projects in Palau.
