Autoimmunity - Diabetes Link

This article from the Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, describes a recent study which further proves an autoimmunity link to type 1 diabetes  - previously called juvenile diabetes. 

It also does a good job of explaining the actual immune system cells involved in the process of damaging a normal pancreas. 

Yet more evidence of the power of our immune system gone awry.
