Researchers in Austria have suggested that there may be a link between suppressing type 1 diabetes and vaccination against a wide range of rotavers.A research group at the University of Melbourne reported in an article in the Public Library of Science Pathogens that rotavirus may play a role in the development of type 1 diabetes.Has Type 1 Diabetes Stagnated Due to Rota Vaccination? (photo: iStock) Rotavirus infections are the leading cause of gastroenteritis primarily in young children. Vaccines introduced in recent years have significantly reduced the risk of fatalities following infection. This data supports the assumption that there is a correlation between rotavirus infection and diabetes in genetically predisposed children. Researchers have taken a series of molecular evidence that has been linked. Environmental factors can influence the relationship between rotavirus and type 1 diabetes, the authors said, and it would be important to know which children would benefit from vaccination against the rot. An important area of research would be to determine whether direct linkage can be found between the virus-induced pancreatic infection and the autoimmunity occurring in Type 1 diabetes.
