Do Pancreatic Cells Write Their Own Autoimmune Ending?

Do the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas unwittingly produce a signal that aids their own demise in Type 1 diabetes? That appears to be the case, according to lipid signaling research co-led by Sasanka Ramanadham, Ph.D., professor of cell, developmental and integrative biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and Charles Chalfant, Ph.D., […]

Manufacturing Novel Stem Cell Products To Treat Type 1 Diabetes

The ISLET project, a multi-center collaboration of leading European researchers, aims to develop a manufacturing pipeline for stem cell-based products to treat patients with Type 1 Diabetes. In Type 1 Diabetes a patient’s immune system destroys the beta cells within the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas making a patient depend-ent on life-long delivery of […]

Biomarker identified for early beta cell death in Type 1 diabetes

Beta cells in the pancreas produce insulin. Their death is a key feature of Type 1 diabetes, and that loss starts long before diagnosis. However, there has been no straightforward way to measure that early loss. Anath Shalev, M.D., and colleagues at the University of Alabama at Birmingham now have identified an early biomarker of […]
