Newly Discovered Hybrid Immune Cell Could Finally Explain The Cause of Type 1 Diabetes

Both the peptide and hybrid white cells were more likely to be found in the blood of diabetic patients, adding to the likelihood that they could be responsible for the disease on some level.
It's not only type 1 diabetes that could at last have a detailed explanation. The researchers speculate these DE cells might play a role in other autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Further research will help confirm the cell's actions and maybe even provide insight into potential early treatments for these debilitating immune conditions.

This research was published in Cell.(https://www.cell.com/cell/fulltext/S009 ... 3Dtrue#%20)
