A cure for type 1 diabetes

Read about the novel clinical study.

Diabetes researcher Denis Faustman, MD, PhD and colleagues at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) are using Mercodia´s C-Peptide kits in a novel type 1 diabetes clinical study.

The trial is testing whether using a generic drug to temporarily elevate tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) levels in the body will reduce or eliminate autoimmune T cells in patients with established type 1 diabetes, an approach based on the Faustman lab’s previous success in reversing end-stage diabetes in mice.
