Transfusion of umbilical cord blood into children newly diagnosed with type-1 diabetes appears to reduce disease severity, say US researchers. The findings, presented at the American Diabetes Association's 67th annual conference in Chicago last week, showed that children who received umbilical cord blood transfusions had lower average A1C levels, 7 per cent, than a control group, 8 per cent. They also required much lower average daily insulin than the control group. Researchers now hope to identify exactly what it is in cord blood that is improving diabetes severity so they can produce cell therapies for diabetes.
