This might prove to be useful

This is some interesting news for PWT1D. It seems as though T1's continually produce beta cells but they are continually being killed off by the bodies' immune system. EpiVax a company in Rhode Island has been working on a way to regulate the attack using Tregitopes. According to this pr blurb Tregitopes act as a natural immune system "off switch".
While it is early days this approach to immune modulation gives me hope for a future without D. As a side note, the company I work for produces the peptides or "linear sequences of amino acids" that are used in this research. I'm pretty proud of that.

Thanks for posting this Clare,

I hope this can help us in the future, it sounds promising. Congrats on being a part of it all!
