In a recent study, the human epigenetics team at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, found that the investigational drug GSK-126 can potentially restore insulin-producing beta-cells in Type 1 diabetes patients by inhibiting pancreatic EZH2.  The study appears in the Nature journal, Signal Transduction and Targeted Therapy. 

The EZH2 enzyme inhibits genes responsible for the development of insulin-producing beta-cells.
