Drugs that delay diabetes

post-image
Researchers have found that diabetes could be kept at bay in animals by clearing out defective insulin-producing cells. Drug development has previously been focused on preserving these ?beta cells? by preventing the immune system wiping them out, but US researchers say their findings turn this on its head. Their data suggest the problem may not be an immune system gone awry. Instead, perhaps therapies should find a way to do the job the immune system is failing to do: clear the senescent cells early on. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/paradigm-shift-in-type-1-diabetes-shows-new-drugs-which-could-delay-disease-s-emergence?
