Re: [IP] Re: FDA Approved trial for 100 year old vaccine use on T1 D!



For me, as best as I can tell, I had strep throat, got treated, and it cleared
up. This was 4 weeks before the onset of type 1 symptoms. All I can think is
that my immune system got turned oon - as well it should - for the strep
infection, and forgot to turn off.

No, Dr. Faustman believes she has identified the specific T-cell that
attacks the beta-cells in the pancreas and has figured out a way to
eliminate them. The cause of the T-cell activation remains unknown as
far as I know.
