What are the causes of autoimmunity in Type 1 Diabetes patients? Study explains
Barbara Corkey, a Ph.D. professor emeritus of medicine and biochemistry at BUSM explained that previous studies have focused on the triggers, genes, and proteins that differentiate individuals with T1D from those without diabetes with a focus on the b-cell which create antibodies, as a target of immune destruction and blood glucose as the main abnormality.
Scientists have used testable hypotheses to explain the initiation of autoimmunity in type 1 diabetes patients in which the pancreas makes little or no insulin. They said that this latest study would allow early detection and possible intervention of T1D in susceptible individuals, according to the news agency ANI.
