Autoimmunity plays a role in the onset of diabetes after 40 years of age

Conclusions/interpretationOur study indicates that incident diabetes in adults has an element of autoimmune aetiology. Thus, there might be a reason to re-evaluate the present subclassification of diabetes in adulthood.

AbstractBackgroundApproximately 40% of pts with HR+, HER2 – ABC have mutations (mut) in PIK3CA, which encodes α-PI3K and leads to PI3K pathway hyperactivation and potentially ET resistance. ALP is a selective inhibitor of α-PI3K that, in combination with fulvestrant (FUL), significantly improved median progression-free survival (PFS) vs placebo + FUL i n pts with PIK3CA-mut, HR+ HER2– ABC in the phase 3 SOLAR-1 trial (11.0 vs 5.7 mo, respectively; HR 0.65; 95% CI, 0.50-0.85; P

ter The virome is comprised of endogenous retroviruses, eukaryotic viruses, and bacteriophages and is increasingly being recognized as an essential part of the human microbiome. The human virome is associated with Type-1 diabetes (T1D), Type-2 diabetes (T2D), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, and cancer. Increasing evidence also supports trans-kingdom interactions of viruses with bacteria, small eukaryotes and host in disease progression. The present review focuses on virus ecology and biology and how this translates mostly to human gut virome research. Current challenges i...

We report a case of acute-onset type 1 diabetes due to combined application of nivolumab and intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Gu érin (BCG). An 84-year-old woman underwent lung resection for pulmonary squamous cell carcinoma. She had been treated for type 2 diabetes and later experienced lung cancer recurrence. She was started on nivolumab treatment, and complete response was achieved for one year. However, during this time, she was diagnosed with superficial bladder cancer and underwent surgery but experienced recurrence. After one month of intravesical BCG instillation, the patient developed acute-onset type 1 diabe...

UCLA bioengineers and their colleagues have developed a new type of insulin that could help prevent hypoglycemia in people who use the drug to manage diabetes.The treatment is being evaluated for potential clinical trials and, if successful, could change diabetes care. Thestudy   was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Insulin is a hormone naturally produced in the pancreas. It helps the body regulate glucose, which is consumed through food and provides the body with energy.Diabetes occurs when a person ’s body does not naturally produce insulin (Type 1 diabetes), or does not efficie...
