I haven't read the study itself and make no claims…but if true, a very interesting potential!

I found an article with a bit more info. It seems it is not a cure for T1D but something that gives better control overall. It hasn't been tested on T2D but there is a potential that it will improve BG control for us as well.

This piece refers to the journal Vaccine. I am unable to find the published study. I would like to read it myself as "science" writers often don't get it right.

We live in exciting times. I've read about Dr Faustmann before and these results are intriguing. Wouldn't it be wonderful if I could ditch the insulin after 42 years on it!…but, I'm not holding my breath.
