100-year-old vaccine wins FDA approval for human clinical trials to reverse Type 1 diabetes

Is a drug to reverse diabetes in our future?

This is amazing!  A 100-year-old vaccine for tuberculosis has been so successful at controlling Type 1 diabetes that it's won FDA approval:

Scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital are hoping to prove that type 1 diabetes can be reversed with the help of a generic drug.

The five-year long, phase II clinical trial, which received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, was announced Sunday during the 75th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association, one of the largest diabetes gathering in the country.

Scientists have already tested the bacillus Calmette-Guerin vaccine in mice, showing the drug’s ability to eliminate abnormal white blood cells responsible for the autoimmune disease.
The drug now moves on to the next phase of clinical trials:

Now, the FDA has approved a trial of 150 adults age 18 to 60 with long-term Type 1 Diabetes, an autoimmune disease usually diagnosed in children and young adults.

Good news for the roughly 29 million Americans and 387 million worldwide who suffer from the disease.
