Autoimmune Diabetes: Markers of the Disease and Treatment of Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of the Adults (LADA)

2014-08-27 03:12:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Autoimmunity is the main cause of diabetes type 1 and an important factor as cause of LADA. Recently, research have found that being deficient of T-reg cells is an important cause of autoimmunity. The study hypothesis are as follow:

1. Patients with newly found diabetes type 1 have less T-reg than healthy.

2. Patients with newly found diabetes type 1 have less T-reg than patients with long duration of the illness.

3. The number of T-reg is negative associated with HLA-risk-haplotype.

4. Same for LADA.

5. Differences relating to inflammatory cytokines will be seen among patients with newly found diabetes type 1, but not among others.

Description

Research have worked out that b-cells are being destroyed by cytokines released from inflammatory cells. One hypothesis in that T-reg is a cause of autoimmunity, and that T-reg concentrations are low in patients with newly diagnosed diabetes type 1.

There will be taken blood samples from ten patients with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes, LADA and type 1 diabetes older than 10 years and the same amount of samples from healthy, age- and sexmatched blood donors.

T-reg cells, inflammatory cytokines, HLA, anti-GAD, anti-IA2, white blood count, CRP, fasting C-peptide and HbA1c will be analyzed.

Our hypothesis is written above.

Imaging Inflammation in Autoimmune Diabetes

The purpose of this study is to determine whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with ferumoxtran-10 can be used to detect changes in the pancreas associated with autoimmune diabetes.

Early Insulin Treatment in Patients With Latent Autoimmune Diabetes

Among adult patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, about 6% have autoantibodies directed against the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas. These patients have a progressive beta...

Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 Inhibitor was proved to improve glycemic control and βcell function in latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA). The potential immune modulation mechanism is still unknown. ...

Interplay between Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus and Celiac Disease: Implications in Treatment.

A complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors contributes to disease etiology of most of the autoimmune disorders. Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and celiac disease (CD) are polygenic...

Soluble B7-H3 (sB7-H3) is over-expressed in the serum of type 1 diabetes patients.

Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease resulting from insulin-secreting β-cells mediated by autoreactive T cells. We demonstrated increased level of sB7-H3 in T1D patients than in healthy con...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Autoimmune diabetes in adults with slowly progressive PANCREATIC BETA CELL failure and the presence of circulating autoantibodies to PANCREATIC ISLETS cell antigens.

Experimental animal models for human AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. They include GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME (see NEURITIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL); MYASTHENIA GRAVIS (see MYASTHENIA GRAVIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL); and MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (see ENCEPHALOMYELITIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL).

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
