Using mice, we found that infection with intestinal parasitic nematodes suppressed the onset of type 1 diabetes. The mechanism is that the parasite secretes a sugar called trehalose, which causes the growth of Ruminococcus intestinal bacteria, which induces CD8Treg, which stops the destruction of pancreatic cells and causes the onset of type 1 diabetes. Was revealed to be suppressed.
