In the latest article – “Insulitis and characterisation of infiltrating T cells in surgical pancreatic tail resections from patients at onset of type 1 diabetes” published in the journal Diabetologia – Lars Krogvold et al. found that insulitis and a significant reserve reservoir for insulin production were present in all six cases of recent-onset type 1 diabetes.
The DiViD team work together with a group at the University of Exeter Medical School, which for the first time found that, while children aged six or under are left with very few insulin-producing beta cells in their pancreas when diagnosed, those with onset of symptomatic type 1 diabetes as teenagers still retain large numbers of these cells. The paper, called “Differential insulitic profiles determine the extent of beta cell destruction and the age at onset of type 1 diabetes” was published in the journal Diabetes.
2015 was again a successful year for Oslo Diabetes Research Centre. We have reached several milestones in 2015. We were invited as partner to apply for an IMI2 EU consortium called INNODIA and the consortium was granted EUR 36 Mill for type 1 diabetes research the seven years to come. We were in total granted NOK 17 mill by the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority for the coming years. The center is steadily improving its’ international reputation. We produced about 90 international publications. In this year’s annual report you may notice many publications in the highest ranked diabetes related scientific journals.
