  • Re: An islet transplant w/o ARD apparently showing success.
    GKGK The device requires daily oxygen injection The often quoted figure of 10 000 kg needed to get insulin independence is for islets injected into the liver where it is thought that up to 80 are destroyed rapidly A better figure may be the islet requirement when it comes from the same person autologous transplantation used for diabetes resulting when the pancreas is reoved for pancreatitis and the islet purified

    type 1 diabetes The enterovirus penetrates the pancreas and destroys insulin producing cells eventually causing diabetes Researchers have looked at more than a hundred different strains of the virus and pinpointed five that could cause diabetes They believe they could produce a vaccine against those strains We have identified one virus type that carries the biggest risk said professor Heikki Hyöty A vaccine could also protect against its close relatives to give the best possible effect Ready to test on humans A similar enterovirus causes polio which has been almost eradicated in many parts of the world thanks to vaccination programmes A prototype diabetes vaccine has already been produced and tested on animals We know that this vaccine is effective in mice noted Hyöty It is important to test it in people so that we can be sure that the vaccine prevents diabetes Taking the vaccine through a clinical trial would cost some 700 million euros Some funding is in place from the United States and from Europe but more is required Money is the biggest obstacle to testing in humans at the moment said Hyöty The matter is of international interest and people are interested in us I m

    have had zero effect on larger mammals or humans Decades of similar studies have proven that NOD mice have a disease very different from human type 1 diabetes Furthermore testing a mass vaccine on thousands of children almost all of whom will never develop diabetes will be a tough sell It once again reminds me of the Japanese researcher at a diabetes conference who claimed to have discovered an intervention

    times using the term could which in reality is if maybe potentially and ultimately just wishful thinking speculation What I wanted to confirm was that a research team at Tampere Finland had been working on this and potentially had identified 5 virus strains that could lead to diabetes so yes a lot of ifs and maybes Developing a vaccine that would be effective in humans is a giant leap from

    there may be others but the increase of Type 1 diabetes over the last forty years without accounting epidemics of the various viruses suggested by th FINNISH work argues against these viruses being involved in the cause Year ago I collaborated with a group in Seattle looking at one of these candidate viruses and found infection with it actually reduced not increased the risk of diabetes q Unfortunately another two
