Editorial Reviews

"The first section provides a sound discussion of our understanding of the etiology of the disease, providing the reader with an excellent working knowledge to assess possible future prevention strategies. The clinical chapters are well organized, authored by known experts, and provide excellent summaries of cutting edge management. The final chapters devoted to islet transplantation and the relevant scientific issues are timely and enlightening...This entry in the Contemporary Endocrinology series represents a uniquely accessible overview of the current scientific and clinical frontiers relevant to type 1 diabetes mellitus. By providing an understanding of where immunological knowledge will likely lead and what current therapy should entail, this book provides an opportunity for both clinical and research specialists to better understand each other's fields." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"A highly recommended book that is hard to put down. It was easy to read, detailed, and extremely useful in a practical sense for clinicians." - E-Streams"The complex interactions of genetics, autoimmunity, and insulin secretion are covered thoroughly and would gainfully challenge most experts in the field." -Annals of Internal Medicine
