I was just diagnosed with T1, probably the LADA: late onset autoimmune type.
I have been reading on the net about successfull taming of the immune systems T-cells to stop them from destroying beta cells in rats or mice (by introducing beta cells in the environment, Thymus, were the immune cells are produced)! An other approach are drugs that suppress the immune system from destroying the the beta cells.
My beta cells are still producing some insuline and I would be very interested in cryopreserving some pancreati tissue for the future!! Has anyone done this or heard of this as a possible investment?
