JDRF Partner ViaCyte Announces Key Project Milestone to Advance Innovative Encapsulated Cell Replacement Therapy Product for Type 1 Diabetes
Date:7/17/2014

by hiding them from the immune system, providing a safe environment where they can function normally. The cells can constantly assess the amount of glucose in the blood and release exactly the correct amount of insulin. Importantly, encapsulation therapy overcomes one of the major obstacles that has slowed progress in the islet transplant field, which is the need for lifetime administration of powerful and toxic immunosuppressive drugs to prevent the immune system from destroying the newly introduced islets.

ViaCyte's VC-01 product candidate, a cell replacement therapy could potentially transform the way individuals with T1D manage their disease by supplying an alternative source of insulin-producing cells with the potential to free individuals from a dependence on external insulin use.  If the product candidate performs as intended, it has the potential to provide individuals who have T1D with a replacement for the beta cells lost or impaired as a result of their disease.

Beta cell encapsulation research is a high priority research area for JDRF because of its potential benefits for individuals with T1D. JDRF has provided substantial funding for multiple scientific research programs to advance discovery and development research in this area.
