    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vid Typ 1 diabetes mellitus (insulinberoende, [ungdoms]) förlorar kroppen förmågan att tillverka insulin, det hormon som styr upptaget av socker i kroppens celler. Insulinet bildas av bukspottskörtelns hormonproducerande betaceller, och Typ 1 diabetes orsakas av att dessa celler skadas och förstörs. READ MORE

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is an autoimmune disease, characterized by autoimmune mediated loss of insulin secreting Beta-cells. The disease is associated with certain HLA class 11 haplotypes. HLA DR3-DQ2 and DR4-DQ8 are positively while DQ6 (DQA1*0102-DQB1*0602) is negatively associated with the disease in Caucasians.

    Abstract : IDDM is an autoimmune disease, characterized by autoimmune mediated loss of insulin secreting B- cells. GAD65 and IA-2 are major B-cell specific autoantibodies and are not found in healthy population. IDDM is associated with certain HLA class II alleles. IDDM is positively associated with HLA DR3 and DR4 in Caucasians. READ MORE
