Diabetes Researchers Catch Misbehaving Cells At The Scene Of The Crime Local Australia News
Researchers have for the first time observed immune cells in the pancreas of a type 1 diabetes patient, allowing them to watch as the cells attack and destroy the body’s insulin-producing molecules. Source
Type 1 diabetes risk linked to intestinal viruses. Viruses in the intestines may affect a person’s chance of developing Type I diabetes, new research suggests. Children whose gut viral communities are less diverse are more likely to generate self-destructive antibodies that can lead to Type 1 diabetes. Further, children who carried a specific virus belonging to the Circoviridae family were less likely to develop diabetes than those who carried members of a different group of viruses. Source 7x.
Spider's web inspires removable implant that may control type 1 diabetes. For the more than 1 million Americans who live with type 1 diabetes, daily insulin injections are literally a matter of life and death. And while there is no cure, a team has developed a device that could revolutionize management of the disease. Source 5t.
Type 1 Diabetes: Autoimmune reaction successfully halted in early stage islet autoimmunity. Scientists have discovered a mechanism that amplifies the autoimmune reaction in an early stage of pancreatic islet autoimmunity prior to the progression to clinical type 1 diabetes. If the researchers blocked the corresponding molecules, the immune system was significantly less active. Source 4b.
