According to recent reports from the Harvard Medical School in Bosto, American, a research team has found that type 1 diabetes could stem from embryo defects.
The diabetes trigger, which may accompany and produce defects in the immune system, could be an alternative explanation for the development of diabetes . Lead researcher Denise Faustman found that organs had fundamental differences before any autoimmune assault. The team used mice in their study.
The researchers propose that pre-birth abnormalities could predispose some people to diseases such as diabetes . Faustman was quoted in the New Scientist Magazine as commenting:
“It challenges the orthodoxy that autoimmunity is solely caused by a defective immune system.”
