One in every three people with type 1 diabetes produces insulin years post-diagnosis

One in every three people with type 1 diabetes produces insulin years post-diagnosis | diabetes and more | Scoop.it
About one-third of people with type 1 diabetes produce insulin, as measured by C-peptide, a byproduct of insulin production, even upward of forty years from initial diagnosis, according to a first-of-its-kind, large-scale study conducted by researchers from T1D Exchange. This sheds new light on the long-accepted belief that these patients lose all ability to produce any insulin; this could have significant policy implications. The findings were published online this week in Diabetes Care.

Remi Creusot's curator insight, December 23, 6:46 PM

Patients were given a low dose of anti-thymocyte globulin, or ATG, normally used to prevent rejection in organ transplant patients, followed by pegylated G-CSF, used in cancer patients to boost immune cells. ATG, commercially known as thymoglobulin, was delivered through an IV drip over two days, followed by bimonthly injections of pegylated G-CSF, or Neulasta, for 12 weeks. This combination restored homeostasis among two types of cells that are vital to a healthy immune system: regulatory T-cells and killer T-cells.
