The Diabetes Virus Detection Study (DiViD) was nominated by South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority and elected to be a part of the “National report for research and innovation in specialist health care services 2015”. This annual report has the purpose of highlighting excellent results of research and innovation in specialist health care services – a task given the regional health authorities from the Ministry of Health and Care Services.

New publications from the DiViD Study – Characterisation of insulitis and relation to age.

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.
