Soluble Antigen Arrays (SAgAs) Efficiently Deliver Peptides and Arrest Spontaneous Autoimmune Diabetes. SAgAs offer a novel and promising Antigen-specific immunotherapy platform superior to soluble peptides in inducing tolerance while mitigating risks of anaphylaxis for the treatment of T1D. PubMed, Diabetes, 2021 Jan 19;db200845.
Distinct Phenotypes of Islet Antigen-specific CD4+ T Cells Among the Three Subtypes of Type 1 Diabetes. The phenotypes of islet antigen-specific CD4+ T cells differed among the three T1D subtypes. PubMed, J Clin Endocrinol Metab, 07/11/2020.
Polyglandular autoimmunity in autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) behaves differently from polyglandular autoimmunity in type 1 diabetes. AITD shows clustering of gastric autoimmunity with celiac and adrenal autoimmunity, which is consistent with the proposed entity of the autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2. J. Wiebolt.
