Chemists identify key gene in development of type 1 diabetes

...people, particularly children, avoid a lifetime of insulin injections, Al-Abed says. Prediabetic individuals are those who have blood markers ?either antibodies or genetic markers ?that are predictive of the disease but are still able to produce insulin.

"The reason I'm so excited about this is because normally the Edmonton Protocol is done with islets from brain-dead organ donors. Those islets are often severely injured from cold storage, transport time and the ...

Genetic defects give the immune system the green light to attack the pancreas

...t food into energy. To sustain life, they must get insulin through injections. The disorder can emerge in childhood, adolescence and even appear in adulthood, but the genetic stage is set beforehand. T-cells play a key role. They are part of the highly complex array of immune cells that normally work togeth...

Therapeutic genes can then be tracked by MRI to ensure the target is reached and the desired activations occur. Prof. Neeman: "The use of ferritin as a reporter gene ...

Study: Well-known protein helps stem cells become secretory cells

...pancreatic cells that normally produce and secrete insulin don't work, and stem cells might be able to help fix that problem, the researchers note. "The key is knowing how pancreatic cells know what hormones to produce and release, or how any gland does, and the new findings add to that knowledge," says Debo...
