Immunotherapies are new treatments that reprogramme the immune system so that it no longer attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. They’re being tested in clinical trials and could give us a way to stop type 1 diabetes in its tracks or prevent the condition entirely. Diabetes UK’s video explains how immunotherapies work and how they could help people with or at risk of Type 1 diabetes in the future. Immunotherapies would be a major shift in the way Type 1 diabetes is treated in the future, by tackling its root cause for the first time as well as moving closer to a cure. Diabetes UK funds research to help us make these treatments a reality sooner, saying ‘our researchers won’t stop until immunotherapies are transforming lives’.
