Immunotherapies are new treatments that reprogramme the immune system so that it no longer attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. They're being tested in clinical trials and could give us a way to stop type 1 diabetes in its tracks or prevent the condition entirely.
In our video we explain how immunotherapies work and how they could help people with or at risk of type 1 diabetes in the future.
Immunotherapies would be a major shift in the way we treat type 1 diabetes – tackling its root cause for the first time and moving us closer to a cure. We're funding research to help us make these treatments a reality sooner. And our researchers won’t stop until immunotherapies are transforming lives.
