Anti-Inflammatory Immunotherapy Shows Potential for Treating and Reversing Diabetes

The 'Scientific Reports' journal published a study that shows anti-inflammatory immunotherapy may be a promising diabetes treatment. According to the findings, it may even reverse diabetes.

The Study

Researchers studied diabetic mice and found that immune cell protein interleukin-35 helped them maintain normal blood sugar levels.

In studying the mice, researchers found their bodies produced destructive proteins; by supplementing with protective anti-inflammatory proteins, the condition became reversed.

A Long Way to Go

Animal trials are only a first step for new drugs and treatments. Researchers are hopeful that the results will be telling, but it will be a long while before studies on humans commence.

Until then, hold on-- technology continues to work towards treatments and potential cures. Every study result brings us one step closer.
