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.
