Transplantation of Autologous Stem Cells for the Treatment of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:1st Feb 2014

Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a chronic, autoimmune condition that involves the progressive destruction of pancreatic β-cells, eventually resulting in the loss of insulin production and secretion. Hence, an effective treatment for T1DM should focus on controlling anti-β-cell autoimmunity, combined with regeneration of lost pancreatic β-cell populations, with minimal risk to the patient.

This is a phase I and II clinical trial for treatment of patient with confirmed diagnosis of T1DM for at least 12 months prior to enrolment in this trial. This study aims to determine the combined effects of autologous stem cell transplantation and immunomodulation, on regeneration of lost β-cells and halting the immune attack on the pancreatic β-cells, respectively.
