anti-CD98hc by Lian at University of Tokushima

Paper Title: Manipulation of CD98 resolves type 1 diabetes in nonobese diabetic mice.

Quote from the Abstract:
Injection of the anti-CD98hc [monoclonal antibody] completely prevented the onset of cyclophosphamide-induced diabetes in NOD mice. Treatment of diabetic NOD mice with anti-CD98hc reversed the diabetic state to normal levels, .... Furthermore, treatment of diabetic NOD mice with CD98hc small interfering RNA resolved T1D. These data indicate that strategies targeting CD98hc might have clinical application for treating T1D
