MANF, Wolfram, and Diabetes #3: Protecting remaining tissues

I am getting many questions about MANF, and many people are looking at my blogs related to this topic.


We became interested in MANF several years ago. Although we have not published any articles related to MANF, we have been accumulating data. The reason we are actively studying MANF is that this molecule may be able to protect remaining pancreatic beta cells and brain cells in patients with Wolfram syndrome and type 1 diabetes. I will tell you more about our strategy in my next blog.
