New mouse model for celiac disease to speed research on treatments

University of Chicago Medical Center

Researchers at the University of Chicago have developed the first truly accurate mouse model of celiac disease. The animals have the same genetic and immune system characteristics as humans who develop celiac after eating gluten. This provides a vital research tool for developing and testing new treatments for the disease.

DNA Misfolding in White Blood Cells Increases Risk for Type 1 Diabetes

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

The study revealed that differences in DNA sequences dramatically changed how the DNA was folded inside the nucleus, ultimately affecting the regulation of genes linked to the development Type 1 diabetes.
