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.
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.

Professor Emil Unanue, laureate in the Senior category, Department of Pathology and Immunology, Washington University School of Medicine, Saint Louis, USA, for his work on the recognition of proteins by the immune system, paving the way to the research of therapies against autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid polyarthritis.
Robert Koch Prize and Gold Medal Awarded
The Foundation has awarded the Robert Koch Gold Medal to Professor Emil R. Unanue for a lifetime of scientific achievement.
...A lifetime of achievement in cellular immunity The Robert Koch Foundation awarded the Robert Koch Gold Medal to Dr. Emil R. Unanue (71), Mallinckrodt Professor and Chairman of the Department of Pathology and Immunology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
This award honors his
outstanding scientific achievements during his
lifetime, which have focused on cellular immunity to bacterial disease pathogens and protein antigens.Unanue
studied the mechanisms that trigger an immune reaction when pathogens enter the body.He
showed that two different cell systems need to communicate with each other in order to eliminate the pathogens.A pathogen is engulfed and decomposed by the phagocytes (scavenger cells).
