Abstract:

Inspired by the articles presented in this issue of The Review of Diabetic Studies, we considered it useful to summarize the latest achievements and current challenges we face in the search for a cure of type 1 diabetes. In this editorial article, we took into account how the research landscape has changed in only a few years. While modern lifestyles impose new concerns, now we have a better knowledge of the various aspects of the disease that can be used to treat our young patients with more appropriate approaches, thereby eliminating old and obsolete prejudices.
