  3. 13. Aspects of autoantibody epitopes in type 1 diabetes

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Hanna Skärstrand; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is strongly associated with autoantibodies against insulin (IAA), glutamic acid decarboxylase 65 (GADA), insulinoma-associated protein 2 (IA-2A) and the most recently identified zinc T8 transporter (ZnT8A). Together or alone, they are important both to predict T1D and to classify diabetes at the time of clinical onset. READ MORE
