Beijing, January 8th (reporter Ji Suping) China is the largest country in the world with diabetes mellitus. The total number is 110 million, of which 1 is diabetes mellitus, and the total number of patients is nearly ten million.

It is reported that by the national health and family planning medical affairs authority support, the Chinese Medical Association initiated and guidance, the China International Medical Foundation, 505 hospitals in 13 regions of the country to participate in the 2010 -2013 covering the whole age Chinese type 1 diabetes research "the latest results show:

The incidence of type 1 diabetes in China is 1.01/10 million. Among them, the incidence of children aged 0-14 years is 1.93/10 million, 15-29 years old, the incidence of 1.28/10 is 1.28/10, and the incidence of 0.69/10 is 30.

Studies show that China is still one of the lowest incidence of type 1 diabetes in the world, but in the past 20 years, the incidence of children under 15 years has increased by nearly 4 times, and the number of newly diagnosed adult onset 1 diabetes mellitus is also not to be underestimated. In China, 13000 cases of new type 1 diabetes are newly developed each year, of which more than 9000 are in people over 15 years of age. Most newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes is diagnosed in adulthood.

The study is the first country in the world to study the characteristics and rules of the onset of type 1 diabetes in all ages. The British Medical Journal (BMJ) website and the American Association for the promotion of science and technology published the results in the same period in January 4th.


Type 1 diabetes is common in children and adolescents, but it can happen at any age. It causes the real cause of autoimmune diseases. Now there is no unified view in medical field, which leads to neither effective prevention nor screening in birth check.

Moreover, the onset of type 1 diabetes is quite acute. It is absolutely deficient in insulin and prone to ketoacidosis. It must rely on insulin for life. Otherwise, it will endanger life.

But even under the standard treatment of insulin, 10-20 years later, there is still a great possibility of being taken away by the related complications.

Xenotransplantation of porcine islets
Type 1 diabetes or Terminator!

Faced with such a dilemma, established by the Third Xiangya Hospital of Central South University and Hunan sainuo biological Polytron Technologies Inc Co, led by Professor Wang Wei of Central South University research team, through more than twenty years of painstaking research, finally find a new way to completely prevent the occurrence and development of diabetic complications, that is, porcine islet transplantation in treatment of diabetes technology.

At present, this technology has been adopted by organizations related to five disciplines of national top expert for final review by the Hunan Provincial Medical Association, perhaps in the near future, we will be able to see the diabetic patients with this technique to save more and more, bring a better future of mankind!
