Title: “Novel Hybrid Cytokine for Therapy of Type-1Diabetes”
Amount: $68,145
Award Dates: 05/01/2013-04/30/2014

We have developed novel proprietary reagents that are anti-inflammatory. The goal of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of these immuno-modulatory reagents for therapy of Type-1Diabetes using mouse models. Following the successful completion of these studies, the therapeutic reagents will be employed for future translational studies against autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
