Induction of antigen-specific tol- cells located in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans. Disease erance is preferable. The application of nanomedicine to the onset can occur at any time, but most often happens at 5– problem of T1D can take different forms, but one promising 7 years of age or puberty, and there are about 280 million cases way is the development of tolerogenic nanoparticles, the aim worldwide today [1, 2]. Currently, the most common therapy of which is to mitigate the islet-destroying autoimmunity. We for T1D is insulin replacement [1–3]. Unfortunately, insulin review the topic and highlight recent strategies to produce replacement is not without its drawbacks.
