There is a window of time, after the onset of diabetes but before all the cells are destroyed, in which the mouse pancreas can be rescued, said Dr. Emil Unanue, a Washington University immunologist and author of the study, published today in the journal Science."You have a window of time in humans, too," he said.
But Unanue and two other independent university labs say they can't find the signature of regenerated spleen stem cells.They also had less success in curing the mice; in Unanue's lab, only four of 22 mice were cured.He says controlling the immune system merely lets a few remaining pancreatic cells get a finger hold to start producing insulin again.
