I swear announcements like this just keep coming faster and fasterPure Insulin-producing Cells Produced In Mice
Reading thru this, it mentions that the insulin-producing cells weren’t destroyed in an auto-immune response. Does this imply that the auto-immune system is not targeting these cells directly?
I seem to remember reading a while ago that another study showed the cells surrounding the beta cells were actually being attacked and were inflamed. This inflammation was what was causing the beta cells to stop producing insulin. I’ll have to see if I can dig that one up
I couldn’t seem to find the one I was thinking of, there are lots of articles about inflammation and T2, but only a couple of them about T1, but it does seem to play a roll
