Type One Diabetes Study on Mice Advances

March 25, 2006 - Posted at 12:41 p.m. CST

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ St. Louis researchers say they are one step

closer to curing Type One diabetes using drug studies on mice at

Washington University.

A study published in the journal Science this week shows a

window of time in mice after diabetes sets in where drugs can save

insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.

Doctor Emil Unanue, the study's author, says

that same window is in humans who have Type One diabetes.

The study advances a transplant-free approach to curing Type One

with a short and inexpensive drug treatment.

As many as three million diabetes cases are Type One,

according to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Researchers hope medication can eliminate the need for

pancreatic cell transplants that require long-term drug treatment.
