Involvement of O2 radicals in 'autoimmune' diabetes.


Spontaneous diabetes in the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice is a CD4 T cell-dependent process. We have suggested that specific beta cell destruction results from free radical production at the site of islet inflammation; oxygen radicals are produced by activated inflammatory cells. We reported here that in vivo treatment of spontaneously diabetic NOD mice… (More)
