CONNECTING FOR CURES

JDRF, MS Society and Versus Arthritis,

with support from the British Society for

Immunology, have come together in a bid

to tackle autoimmune conditions.

Connect Immune Research estimates

four million people in the UK are living

with an autoimmune condition - more

than 6% of the population. This includes

400,000 people with Type 1 diabetes,

over 100,000 living with multiple sclerosis

(MS) and over 400,000 with rheumatoid

arthritis.

The group wants to know how

immune disorders are linked and to build

momentum among funders and scientists

to find the answer by working together.

Their response could transform lives and

transform them much faster than small

groups of specialists working in parallel.

Karen Addington, UK Chief Executive

of JDRF, said: "Autoimmune conditions

all involve the immune system acting

inappropriately, so we know they are

connected. But researchers investigating

different autoimmune conditions are

not. Until now, they have largely worked

separately, focused on the specific

conditions rather than the interconnected

factors of autoimmunity.

"By bringing them together, we

can find more information about these

conditions - meaning reduced costs, and

more new treatments, faster. One insight

into one condition could act as a skeleton

key, unlocking a range of treatments and

even cures."

Connect Immune Research has

awarded its first grant to Professor Yanick

Crow, of the University of Edinburgh.

He will be working with specialists from

across different conditions to understand

the role of an immune system protein,

named interferon, in autoimmunity.

Interferon can be harmful or beneficial

in different autoimmune diseases, but

it is not known why. This study will use

laboratory tests to understand the role of

interferon in autoimmunity and the team

hopes it will lead to better, more targeted

treatments.

on the research

A postcode lottery is preventing thousands

of people with long-term health conditions

and mental health problems from getting

the help they need, Diabetes UK has

revealed.

Research shows that people with

a long-term physical health condition

- like diabetes - are two to three times

more likely to experience mental health

problems, such as anxiety or depression.

As a result, NHS England asked

all local areas to set up mental health

services for people living with long-term

conditions, by April 2019. It was then

up to local decision-makers to make the

necessary service provision in their areas.

However, Diabetes UK has found

that these services aren't available in all

areas. Almost a quarter of areas (23%) in

England do not have, or could not confirm

that they had, these services in place.

The charity is now calling for every

area to ensure they're meeting the

specific needs of people with diabetes,

by committing to provide these basic, vital

services.

To find out more about combined

mental health support and diabetes care,

services available in your area visit the
