The original objective was to detect the viral culprit for type 1 diabetes. Instead, they confirmed the autoimmune basis of the disease; the clinically silent but immunologically active stage in individuals who had islet cell and GAD autoantibodies years before developing diabetes; and the causative links with some HLA antigens and the protective nature of others. Sadly Andrew died just as the study was producing its most impressive results but it remains a fine example of how happenchance and clinical diligence can combine to change our thinking about disease in fundamental ways.

Chapter 6 Epidemiology and aetiology of type 1 diabetes KEY POINTS • Type 1 diabetes is one of a number of autoimmune endocrine diseases with a genetic and familial basis, although the majority of cases occur sporadically. • Incidence rates vary from <5 to >40 per 100,000, generally being highest in northern latitudes. The most common cause of type 1 diabetes (over 90% of cases) is T cell-mediated autoimmune destruction of the islet β cells leading to a failure of insulin production. The exact aetiology is complex and still imperfectly understood.

NKCF, natural killer cell factor; TNF, tumour necrosis factor. EPIDEMIOLOGY AND AETIOLOGY OF TYPE 1 DIABETES chromosome 11, has a smaller effect than IDDM1 and acts independently. Together with IDDM 12 (CTLA-4), it contributes around 15% of the genetic risk. The other 17 genes individually contribute little. The predisposing polymorphism in the IDDM 2 gene and how it influences the disease has yet to be determined. CHAPTER 6 41 Alternatively, viral damage may release sequestered islet antigens and thus restimulate resting autoreactive T cells, previously sensitised against β cell antigens (‘bystander activation’).
