Type 1 diabetes and immune-based therapies

Despite major advances in understanding the immunopathology of type 1 diabetes, the promise of successful immune-based therapies has so far been unfulfilled. This two-paper Series from The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology covers the current challenges faced in the development of immune-based therapies for type 1 diabetes and approaches to overcome them in the future. In the first Series paper, Mark Atkinson and colleagues discuss the challenge of modulating β-cell autoimmunity in type 1 diabetes, highlighting how gaps in understanding of disease pathogenesis and issues with study design have hampered advances in translating initially promising preclinical approaches into clinical therapies, and recommending several approaches to advance progress in this area. In the second Series paper, Bart Roep and colleagues focus on antigen-specific immunotherapy approaches, highlighting recent research advances and the opportunities and challenges of translating research findings into clinical strategies that prevent progressive loss of β-cell function and survival in patients.
