Q.6: What is Evisit application for cure of Type 1 Diabetes to universities and researchers?
Ans. It is estimated that more than one million people have type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults and is often referred to as juvenile diabetes. In type 1 the body does not produce insulin, and daily injections are needed.
In islet cell transplantation, islet cells are extracted from the pancreas of a deceased donor and infused into the recipient through the portal vein of the liver. In successful transplants, the cells lodge in the liver’s small blood vessels and begin producing insulin. The procedure is seen as having the most potential as a treatment for type 1 diabetes.
“The technology for separation of insulin producing cells from the human pancreas, which we developed and made available worldwide in the ‘90s, allowed for the first successful trials of clinical islet transplantation,” says Dr. Ricordi. “The introduction of novel anti-rejection strategies in the last five years allowed a significant improvement in the success rate of the procedure, but did not eliminate some of the most serious side effects of chronic immunosuppression, which now severely limits the applicability of islet transplantation to the most severe forms of type 1 diabetes.”
We have approved patents in the cure of diabetes and its complications. The molecule patented by us is in keeping with “Recent Advances in Genomics and Fundamentals of Immunology”. We have shown that our molecule is critical missing step in “Islet cell transplant performed by several universities in USA (https://citregistry.org).
