Viruses may cause Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes. We wondered whether the number and function of natural killer cells, which are important in anti-viral defense, are disturbed in diabetic patients. We studied 16 recently diagnosed Type 1 diabetic patients, 18 Type 1 diabetic patients diagnosed more than 15 years previously, 18 Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetic patients and 23 control subjects. We determined the number of natural killer cells (expressed as log10%) using anti-Leu 11… CONTINUE READING
