Viruses & Diabetes Update

Dear Friends,

this week we have:

1) an interesting case report showing that antiviral therapy for HCV leads to insulin withdrawal in type 2 diabetes (an example for interventional studies);

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28413215

2) a study showing that a "vaccine stimulating Tregs" does reverse diabetes in mice (Theodora Staeva is one o the authors - full text not available).
