This book is a compilation that includes mechanisms of type 1 diabetes pathogenesis, genetics, beta cell replacement therapy and immunotherapies. Authors have reviewed current literature on each of these topics to provide an excellent compendium on current understanding of how type 1 diabetes evolves and progresses and on the current status of treatment strategies.
The etiology of diabetes remains a mystery. There are suggestions that viral or other environmental agents are causal. The autoimmune nature of the disease including CD4+ and CD8+ T cells have been extensively explored; yet why these cells become pathogenic and the underlying causes of pathogenesis are not fully understood. The section includes description of recently defined biomarkers for pathogenic T cells.
There are many ventures in to immunotherapy, attempting to control auto-aggressive T and B cells and some of these approaches and rationales are discussed. The section on genetics covers what is known from genome – wide associated studies (GWAS) and other studies. A section on imaging includes the current status of examining beta cells during diabetogenesis and a section on beta cell replacement describes the current status of that treatment option. This book is an excellent review of the most current understanding on development of disease, imaging of disease pathogenesis and treatment opportunities.
