Unique drug combination may hold the key to reversing Type I diabetes
Date:6/10/2008

Norfolk, Virginia Promising results from a study that tested a new approach for reversing Type 1 diabetes are being presented this week at the American Diabetes Association's 68th Annual Scientific Session in San Francisco.

The study tested the combination of Lisofylline (LSF), a drug that is being developed to halt immune damage to insulin producing cells, and Islet Neogenesis Associated Protein peptide (INGAP), a drug based on a naturally occurring protein produced by the pancreas.

In Type 1 diabetes, however, the pancreas' ability to self-r
