In type 1 diabetes does not produce insulin due to the immune system destroying the cells that create insulin. These cells create problems in the pancreatic islets, where insulin is produced. The vaccine works by eliminating these T cells.

The vaccine saw Inject in a patient that increase in the levels of a substance called tumor necrosis factor. The increased level of TNF in the system destroys the T cells that are hindering the production of insulin.

The tuberculosis vaccine injected twice In a previous trial within a four-week time frame. The results showed that the dangerous T cells were gone, and some people began the secretion of insulin in their body.

Dr. Denise Faustman, director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Immunology Laboratory in Boston, is hopeful for the BCG vaccine.

“In the preliminary phase demonstrated a statistically significant response to BCG, but our goal in (this trial) is to create a lasting therapeutic response. We will be working again with people who have had type 1 diabetes for many years. This is not a prevention trial; instead, we are trying to create a regimen that will treat even advanced disease” explained Dr. Denise.

Again, will use the same format as the previous trial. On the people at age between 18 and 60. The subjects will inject twice a vaccine in a period of 4 weeks, and then once a year for a 4-year time span.

The results of a past study published by The Diabetes Care journal, which analyzed the effects of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) on kids with diabetes at the age between 5 and 18. The results showed that the BCG vaccine doesn’t keep the beta-cell function or raise the remission rate in kids.

New Hope and good step for all the patients and people around the world. Especially who are facing the Diabetes. Lets Hope For the Best and stay connected for new update.
