In a new study from Oxford University, researchers revealed that they may be able to develop a mechanism that enables them to protect children from infection at an early stage of their lives.
The researchers behind the study indicated that the idea of this is to train the immune system of children by giving them in the form of a powder, which provides long-term protection for them.
Insulin is the hormone that controls the level of sugar in the blood, and its deficiency causes diabetes.
The researchers believe that giving insulin powder to children from six months to three years old may help protect them from developing diabetes.
And the participants will have to visit the researchers frequently to ensure the progress of the experiment, knowing that half of the participants will use insulin powder only.
It is worth noting that approximately one in every 100 children has genes that increase the risk of developing type 1 diabetes, and it can be tracked through a simple blood test.
The researchers hope that the insulin powder will help the immune system to tolerate the insulin in the body in order to prevent the disease, and it should be noted that there is not yet any way to help prevent the disease.
