Since the time of clinical onset corresponds to a late phase of the disease where most of the insulitis lesions may have disappeared, in particular in adults, β CELLS IN T1D 23 we reasoned that the lymphocytic infi ltrations might be more frequently encountered in the prediabetic phase. Use of autoantibody assays allows us to identify individuals at risk for type 1 diabetes, and these assays were therefore used to select donor organs which may exhibit signs of this phase (In’t Veld et al 2007).
It seems natural, because the body always regenerates if there is inflammation. Butler: My analogy to that is that the worst possible thing to do is to try to drive β cell replication in type 1 diabetes. This would drop the β cell mass. If I had a therapy that I knew would make β cells replicate and I infused that into a patient with early onset type 1 diabetes, my prediction is that β cell mass would drop unless we could protect the newly forming β cells. Bonifacio: If you take away the inflammation, you may no longer get the stimulus.
Foulis: Equally, I have an n of 2 when it comes to prediabetic patients. In the prediabetic patient with Addison’s disease whose pancreas I studied there were 62 islets that hyperexpressed class I MHC but only two that had insulitis (Foulis et al 1988). It might be that hyperexpression of class I MHC is a more sensitive marker of pre-diabetes in a pancreas than looking for insulitis. Eisenbarth: And IFNα . Foulis: Yes, they correlate well. Flavell: Peter Butler, what is it that makes you believe that replicating cells are going to be more likely to die?
