Abstract [en]

Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (type 1-diabetes) results from a selective destruction of the insulin producing beta cells and a limited capacity of the remaining cells to regenerate in a compensatory manner. Increased knowledge of the factors involved in the regulation of beta-cell growth may lead to new ways of forming beta cells that in combination with selective immunosuppression could be used for treatment of type 1 diabetes. Physiological and pathophysiological conditions that induce beta-cell growth, different factors that have been implicated to regulate these processes and future perspectives concerning treatment of type 1 diabetes by expanding the beta-cell mass is discussed in this review article.
