Example text

A lot of effort is focused on finding cures for type 1 diabetes that drive cells out of G0 into cell cycle. All those other cells that are currently sitting at G0 and are relatively protected would suddenly be vulnerable. This is a concern. Insel: I wouldn’t assume that a regenerated β cell in a metabolically stable environment would necessarily be recognized similar to a ‘stressed’ β cell by the immune system in type 1 diabetes. Roep: I’d like to discuss the discordance between seropositivity and insulitis, with regards to the kinetics or chronicity of the disease process, and also the consequences for immune intervention.

This protection was accompanied by stable chimerization in peripheral blood of progeny of the transduced HSCs at 5–8% as detected by a green fluorescent-protein (GFP) reporter (Tian et al 2004). In addition to H2-Ag7, a second diabetogenic class II contributor is represented by a null mutation in the H2-Ea locus such that no I-E molecules are expressed on APCs. Direct injection of a functional H2-Ead gene into NOD/Lt zygotes suppressed insulitis and prevented both spontaneous and cyclophosphamide-induced diabetes (Hanson et al 1996).

When we followed both children who did not progress to diabetes as well as those who did, there was an increase in β cell function over time. This is mimicked in rodent data which show an increase in β cell mass with growth. Related to your studies, therefore, the question that I have is what is normal β cell mass for a six-year-old? Could the reason why you have found such low numbers be because you have compared with an adult normal rather than an age-matched normal individual? Pipeleers: The only data I have seen where β cells have been counted in children with recent-onset diabetes come from the study of Gepts (1965).
