the islet and these cells are cytotoxic to islet β-cells in part by producing cytokines and free radicals ( Rabinovitch & Suarez-Pinzon 1998 ). It has been proposed that the insulitis lesion is β-cell destructive when Th1 cytokines (IL-12, interferon

Introduction The main feature of type 1 diabetes mellitus is an autoimmune insulitis, that is, the infiltration of inflammatory cells around the pancreatic islets ( Andre et al . 1996 ). The insulitis is primarily mediated by proinflammatory
