Monday, September 17, 2018 - 12:17

Researchers have tested a radical new game-changing drug that regrows lost insulin-making cells for type 1 diabetes patients in Cardiff, UK.

A new drug was designed to restore insulin-growing cells which have been lost over time in diabetes patients by stimulating growth, Interesting Engineering reports, specifically, it focuses on beta cells housed in the pancreas.

The project was organized by T1DUK, a UK-based consortium set up in 2015 exclusively for the purpose of creating and testing solutions aimed at the treatment and prevention of type 1 diabetes.

Currently, only two patients have been administered the investigational drug; however, the results have been promising. “I’m really grateful that I was given the opportunity to take part in this study. I hope that my participation will help with the management of Type 1 diabetes for future generations," shared one of the two patients.

The experiments are being coordinated by the Clinical Research Facility (CRF) at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (UHB).
