Prevalence of islet cell antibodies and B cell functional status in insulin dependent diabetes.


As autoimmunity is an important factor in the etiopathogenesis of IDDM, 85 ketosis prone i.e. insulin dependent diabetes (IDD) were evaluated for immunological and beta cell functional status. Islet cell antibodies (ICA) against purified islet cells used in Microwell ELISA Method, were detected in 27.1% of cases (23/85). There was a prevalence of 36.4% of… (More)
