Next Big Future: Gene therapy reverses type 1 diabetes in mice with 78% success rate
Intriguing approach: providing gene therapy to both protect and rebuild the Islets of Langerhans, which means blocking the T cells from the islet cells without compromising them otherwise.
For an early trial of a complex therapy, this is rather brilliant and very promising. Of course, humans are not mice, but type 1 diabetes is generally type 1 diabetes – or something very similar.
Next up: a cure for CRPS, Alzheimer’s, and AIDS. Hey, it could happen.
