Type 1 diabetes mellitus

Type 1 diabetes mellitus is a disease caused by autoimmune destruction of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, resulting in high blood sugar and other metabolic abnormalities. Type 1 diabetes mellitus affects close to four hundred thousand people in the US alone, and is usually diagnosed before age 20. Its long-term consequences may include blindness, nerve damage and kidney failure, and left untreated is rapidly fatal. Treatment involves life-long administration of insulin or pancreas transplantation, both of which may entail serious side effects.

The availability of drugs which selectively block Effector Memory T cells (TME) would offer the hope of preventing the development of the disease in its very early stages.
