Diabetes Breakthrough

If it pans out, a recent medical breakthrough might eliminate the risk of type 1 or juvenile diabetes through a simple vacine. This would be a tremendous advancement in the fight against thiss terrible form of the disease, that effects over 1 million of the 13 million diabetes sufferers.
"We believe this is the most promising compound to date for preventing type 1 diabetes," says researcher Yousef Al-Abed, PhD, an associate investigator at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Research Institute in Manhasset, N.Y., in a news release. "If it works, it will be especially beneficial for young people, who often have a difficult time managing their diabetes with daily insulin injections."
