Description

Groundbreaking technique for the prevention of pancreatic beta cells dysfunction Beta cells which are located in the pancreatic islets secrete insulin hormone which control blood sugar (glucose) level. Pancreatic beta cells dysfunction which is commonly caused by autoimmune disease is the leading cause of type I diabetes. Co-delivery of artificial beta cells and immunosuppressive agent into healthy individual can prevent autoimmune disease of the natural pancreatic beta cells which leads to type I diabetes. Repeated exposure of our immune system to artificial beta cells in the presence of immunosuppressive agent can halt autoimmune reaction to natural pancreatic beta cells. To sum up, training our immune system to recognize pancreatic beta cells as ‘self’ can be beneficial for the prevention of type I diabetes.
