Just In: Diabetes Vaccine Has Officially Revealed! The Whole World are Starting To Celebrate!


Good news finally a vaccine to eliminate diabetes has already been revealed and based on the report that they will start testing the vaccine on 150 people who are in an advanced stage of type one diabetes.

This brilliant discovery that will put hope into millions of people who are suffering from diabetes has been announced at the 75th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association.

Based on the report that patients suffering from diabetes injected with the vaccine has seen an improvement and increase in the levels of a substance called tumor necrosis factor. The increased in TNF can eliminate the T cells which is the main reasons why your body cannot produce insulin.

A person's body who has a type 1 diabetes are unable to produce its own insulin this is because of the immune system suppressing the cells that produce insulin. T cells are produced and this cell is the main reason of causing problems in the pancreatic islet, where insulin is produced. They said that this newly discovered vaccine will work by eliminating these T cells.

The said vaccine which eliminates the T cells are already been used 100 years ago to eliminate tuberculosis (bacillus Calmette-Guerin) and has shown a promising result by reversing this disease. This vaccine is considered as safe because it is one of the common vaccine treatment that is injected for treating bladder cancer.

A previous test has been made by injecting patients with the tuberculosis vaccine twice within a four-week time frame. Then based on the result of the test that dangerous T cells were eliminated within the expected time frame and their body started to produce insulin on their own again.

According to the statement of Dr. Denise Faustman, director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Immunobiology Laboratory that they were very excited and at the same time very happy because of the promising result of the vaccine. He also stated that.

“In phase I (preliminary) trial we demonstrated a statistically significant response to BCG, but our goal in (this trial) is to create a lasting therapeutic response. We will be working again with people who have had type 1 diabetes for many years. This is not a prevention trial; instead, we are trying to create a regimen that will treat even advanced disease.”

The test and trial for the said vaccine will start this summer and will continue testing for five-year trial. The trial will use the same procedure and format as was tested before and will continue injecting those who are enrolled ages from 18 to 60-years-old. They also said that trial patients will have their vaccine once a year for the next four years.

But not all experts about diabetes are confident that this vaccine will work well.

Robert Sobel, an assistant professor of endocrinology at the Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine explain why he is doubtful about this vaccine. He stated that.

“I think it’s a stretch to say this would have a huge impact on the millions plus type I diabetes patients in this country. We would love to do something to preserve or repopulate their beta cell mass. Historically, we have watched it dwindle and have not been able to do something (in time).” 

So only time could tell if this new discovery will work and give new hope for those patients who are suffering from diabetes. So what is your thoughts about this new discovery?  Do you think it will work? Will let's fight diabetes by sharing this good news. We hope that after 5 years of testing this vaccine will be the answer for the long time problem.
