Beta cell survival in T1 diabetes

Monday, September 15th, 2014 | 0 Comments
JDRF-funded researchers have found therapeutic potential of MANF protein to reduce beta cell stress in Type 1 diabetes. In the healthy pancreas of someone without Type 1 diabetes, the hormone insulin (essential for turning food into energy) is produced, stored, and released read more »

Insulin producing cells multiply in test tubes

Monday, June 24th, 2013 | 0 Comments
Scientists have coaxed clusters of insulin-making human cells (beta cells)  to reproduce in the lab, which removes a significant obstacle to one day transplanting the cells in patients with type 1 diabetes. This is according to research done in Washington University in read more »

Mouse hormone boost beta cell production

Monday, May 13th, 2013 | 0 Comments
As reported in Science Magazine, and subsequently by Diabetes Daily, a newly discovered hormone in mice prompts the rodents to boost their production of pancreatic β cells, the ones that make insulin and are missing or not productive enough in patients with read more »

Beta cells divide and conquer?

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012 | 0 Comments
As reported by JDRF, funded scientists at the University of Pittsburgh in America have uncovered a new way to grow human beta cells in the lab. The team led by Professor Andrew Stewart, were able to get human beta cells to divide and read more »

New potential to increase Beta-cells in T1 diabetics

Friday, May 27th, 2011 | 0 Comments
JDRF-funded researchers have identified a key signal that prompts existing insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas to form new beta cells in mice. This breakthrough may help researchers find new ways to increase the number of beta cells in a person with read more »

Alpha cells ‘beat up’ Beta cells

Thursday, March 24th, 2011 | 0 Comments
Researchers say they have discovered a new way in which beta cells in the pancreas are destroyed, according to a recent article posted on dLife. In people with diabetes, the destruction of beta cells leads to Type 1 diabetes.  Specifically, researchers in Texas read more »

Research into beta-cell failure required for T2

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011 | 0 Comments
Because of evidence that beta-cell failure occurs earlier and more severely in patients with type 2 diabetes, a new consensus statement suggests that greater emphasis be placed on regular glycemic screening. It is also recommended that greater emphasis be placed on early read more »

Beta cell production probably stops at age 30

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010 | 0 Comments
New research finds that beta cells do not replicate after the age of 30, according to a recent article from DLife. In Type 1 diabetes, the immune systems mistakenly attacks and kills beta cells, which are responsible for insulin production. In Type 2 read more »

Beta cell research called for in Type 2 diabetes

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010 | 1 Comment
Because of evidence that beta-cell failure occurs earlier and more severely in patients with type 2 diabetes, a new consensus statement suggests that greater emphasis be placed on regular glycemic screening. It is also recommended that greater emphasis be placed on early read more »

Beta cells made from alpha cells can make insulin

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010 | 0 Comments
Researchers say that when they artificially induced Type 1 diabetes in mice in a recent study, alpha cells converted into insulin-producing beta cells, according to a recent article in the HealthDay Reporter. As Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the read more »
