  • Researchers from the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes are featured in the current issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The international team found that daily dose of insulin resulted in an immune response without hypoglycemia, pointing toward the need for further trials to see if it is possible to develop a vaccine for the disease.

  • In a separate article in the same issue of JAMA, a team of researchers from CU SOM (led by Arleta Rewers, MD, PhD) found an increase in the number of children, who at the time of diagnosis with type 1 diabetes, have diabetic ketoacidosis.
