Teplizumab is a type of antibody therapy. It blocks T cells, the ’attack dogs’ of the immune system, stopping them destroying insulin-producing islet cells in the pancreas. A 76-person study — which ran from 2011 to 2018 — found that people who received the treatment developed diabetes symptoms after about five years, on average. That’s three years longer than the average delay for those who received the placebo. It’s also the first drug proven to delay the onset of an autoimmune disorder. The drug's development provides a roadmap for the discovery of pharmaceuticals to stall or prevent other conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

Stroke survivors face an increased risk of suffering a second stroke and developing cognitive disabilities as a result. Evidence indicates that hypertension plays a significant role in this comorbidity, and yet, only 60% of stroke survivors have their blood pressure under control. A Yale-led study studies the link between elevated genetic predisposition to hypertension and more-difficult-to-control blood pressure.
