The role of genetic factors in humoral anti-insulin-response was studied in 87 patients with juvenile onset diabetes. A significant insulin antibody formation was found in 76 (87%) juvenile diabetics. By dividing these patients in four groups according to different heights of insulin antibody levels (non-, low-, moderate- and high-responders) a positive or… CONTINUE READING
