London: In a significant breakthrough, scientists have developed a nasal spray vaccine that could stop children from developing diabetes, a media report said Wednesday.
Immunologist professor Len Harrison, of Australia`s Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, and his team at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, are currently testing the spray on young people, the report said.Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body`s immune system attacks and kills the beta cells that make and release insulin. Insulin, a vital hormone that moves glucose from the blood stream into the body`s cells, itself is a target of the immune attack that kills the beta cells. IANS
