Existing drug shows promise for treating type 1 diabetes – Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) | December 9, 2009

A drug used to treat non-Hodgkins lymphoma and rheumatoid arthritis has been shown to protect insulin producing cells in people with new onset type 1.

Findings from this JDRF funded study in America and reported this month in the New England Journal of Medicine, indicated that rituximab (Rituxan) could help people with type 1 diabetes keep producing some of their own insulin.
