Uppsala University points to anti-inflammatory IL-35 as beneficial in preclinical Type 1 diabetes

A study at Uppsala University has recently shown the potential of an anti-inflammatory cytokine for Type 1 diabetics.

UIC team spurs fresh hope for an islet-cell cure for Type 1 diabetes

Researchers have been experimenting with islet cell transplantation as a possible cure for Type 1 diabetes for decades. These insulin-producing cells are destroyed by Type 1 diabetes, but various transplant methods that worked in animals--including using tiny capsules to deliver the cells in a way that guards against an immune response--have failed to make the grade in humans.

J&J joins forces with JDRF for Type 1 diabetes Dx

Johnson & Johnson's Janssen unit is teaming up with nonprofit JDRF to develop new diagnostic approaches for Type 1 diabetes, aiming to identify the disease earlier and curb its progression.

Beta cells produced from stem cells could treat Type 1 diabetes

Scientists from Harvard University have developed a technique that coaxes embryonic stem cells into fully functioning human insulin-producing beta cells, possibly paving the way for less invasive and more permanent treatment options for Type 1 diabetes.

FDA signs off on highly specific Type 1 diabetes biomarker test

The FDA has signed off on a new, highly specific biomarker blood test designed by an Idaho company to quickly spot Type 1 diabetes.

UPenn team IDs potential target for treating Type 1 diabetes

Scientists have identified a key pathway for a gene that dictates a person's predisposition to Type 1 diabetes, a finding that could lead to new treatments for the prevention and control of diabetes and possibly other metabolic-associated diseases.

Type 1 diabetes reversed in mice

Investigators at the University of Cincinnati have used an experimental therapy to essentially reverse the onset of Type 1 diabetes in mouse models.

Low doses of cancer drug prevent Type 1 diabetes in mice

Low doses of a cancer drug may be able to act as a preventive drug against the development of Type 1 diabetes, according to new findings.

Harvard scientists discover hormone that could treat diabetes

Investigators at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute have discovered a hormone with the ability to produce beta cells--the insulin-producing cells found in the pancreas that are lost in diabetes--that could potentially treat type 2 diabetes more effectively.

Biomarkers predict risk of diabetes-related kidney trouble

Doctors have identified several newer biomarkers that appear to predict the onset of a damaging, diabetes-related kidney complication.
