Diabetic mice provide potential insights into diabetes development

Diabetic mice have higher levels of glutamic acids in their blood and their B cells, which are a kind of white blood cells, produce large amounts of antibodies. Both factors could be a part of the trigger-mechanism for the death of insulin producing beta-cells associated with the development of type 1 diabetes in humans. This is according to a doctoral dissertation from Umeå University. ... Full story
