9 marzo 2015

The genes that increase the risk of Type 1 diabetes have lost their hiding place, scientists report. A research group has located and narrowed down the number of genes that play a role in the disease, according to their study. Knowing the identities and location of causative genes is a crucial development: Other researchers can use this information to better predict who might develop Type 1 diabetes and how to prevent it.
