For many years, it has been put forward that enterovirus infections might precede type 1 diabetes onset and that there might be a link between the two diseases. This study simply shows that it is still not the time to draw firm and clear conclusions as to whether or not enteroviruses do play a role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diabetes. This study is mentioned since an infectious origin of autoimmune disease should be studied more diligently and more widely.
