    Type 1 diabetes mellitus is a chronic autoimmune disease that results from the destruction of beta (β) cells in the pancreatic islets, leading to loss of insulin production and resultant hyperglycemia. Recent developments in stem cell biology have generated much excitement for β-cell replacement strategies; β cells are one of many cell types in the complex islet environment and pancreas. In this Opinion, we discuss recent successful attempts to generate β cells and how this can be coupled with bioprinting technologies in order to fabricate pancreas tissues, which holds great potential for type 1 diabetes.

    UOC Pediatria, Department of Human Pathology in Adulthood and Childhood, University of Messina, via Consolare Valeria, 98125, Messina, Italy.
    Background: Although the autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 3 (APS-3) is the commonest APS that may be encountered in pediatric age, last year literature includes only few studies aiming to specifically ascertain the clinical spectrum of APS-3 in childhood and adolescence.

    In nanoflow liquid chromatography-matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization tandem time-of-flight (nanoLC-MALDI-TOF/TOF) approaches, it is critical to directly apply small amounts of the sample elutes on the sample target using a nanoLC system due to its low flow rate of 200 ~ 300 nl/min. It is recommended to apply a sheath liquid containing a matrix with a several μL/min flow rate at the end of the nanoLC column to ensure a larger co-eluted droplet for more reproducible sample spotting and avoid the laborious task of post-manual matrix spotting. In this study, to achieve a better nanoLC-MALDI performance on sample spotting, we first compared α-Cyano-4-hydroxycinnamic acid (CHCA) solvent composition for efficiently concentrating nanoLC elutes on an anchor chip.

    Nephrolithiasis: A complication of pediatric diabetic ketoacidosis.
    Pediatr Diabetes 2017 Jul 24. Epub 2017 Jul 24.
    The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island.
    Objective: To determine the frequency of nephrolithiasis as a complication of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in pediatrics.

    Methods: We performed a retrospective chart review of patients with DKA admitted to a pediatric hospital between January 2009 and July 2016. We identified patients with nephrolithiasis during admission for DKA. Read More

    Autoimmune Hypoglycemia in Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus.
    Indian Pediatr 2017 Jul;54(7):593-594
    Department of Endocrinology, JIPMER, Pondicherry, India. Correspondence to: Dr Jayakumar Ambigapathy, Department of Endocrinology, JIPMER, Pondicherry 605 006, India.
    Background: Antibodies against exogenous insulin are common in type 1 diabetes mellitus patients. They can cause hypoglycemia, albeit uncommonly.

    Case Characteristics: A 14-year-old girl with type 1 diabetes mellitus presented with recurrent hypoglycemia. Read More

    Maternal-Fetal Outcomes in 34 Pregnant Women with Type 1 Diabetes in Sensor-Augmented Insulin Pump Therapy.
    Diabetes Technol Ther 2017 Jul;19(7):417-422
    1 Division of Endocrinology, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Hospital Universitario San Ignacio , Bogotá, Colombia .
    Background: Pregnancy in women with type 1 diabetes (T1D) is associated with increased risk of maternal complications and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Optimizing glycemic control improves these outcomes.

    Objective: To describe the experience of using sensor-augmented insulin pump therapy (SAPT) and SAPT + low-glucose suspension (LGS) on pregnant women with T1D, including neonatal and maternal outcomes. Read More

    Plasma-derived exosome characterization reveals a distinct microRNA signature in long duration Type 1 diabetes.
    Sci Rep 2017 Jul 20;7(1):5998. Epub 2017 Jul 20.
    Diabetes Research Institute, University of Miami, Miami, FL, USA.
    Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) results from an autoimmune attack against the insulin-producing ß cells which leads to chronic hyperglycemia. Exosomes are lipid vesicles derived from cellular multivesicular bodies that are enriched in specific miRNAs, potentially providing a disease-specific diagnostic signature. To assess the value of exosome miRNAs as biomarkers for T1DM, miRNA expression in plasma-derived exosomes was measured. Read More

    Evidence that children born at early term (37-38 6/7 weeks) are at increased risk for diabetes and obesity-related disorders.

    Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Soroka University Medical Center, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel.
    Background: Prematurity is known to be associated with high rates of endocrine and metabolic complications in the offspring. Offspring born early term (37-38 6/7 weeks' gestation) were also shown to exhibit long-term morbidity resembling that of late preterm, in several health categories.

    Objective: We aimed to determine whether early term delivery impacts on the long-term endocrine and metabolic health of the offspring. Read More
