Type-I diabetes is a chronic disease mediated by autoimmune destruction of insulin-producing β-cells. Although progress has been made towards improving diabetes-associated pathologies and the quality of life for those living with diabetes, no therapy has been effective at eliminating disease manifestations or reversing disease progression. Here, we examined whether double-stranded adeno-associated virus serotype 8 (dsAAV8)-mediated gene delivery to endogenous β-cells of interleukin (IL)-4 in combination with β-cell growth factors can reverse early-onset diabetes in NOD mice. Our results demonstrate that a single treatment with dsAAV8 vectors expressing IL-4 in combination with glucagon-like peptide-1 or hepatocyte growth factor/NK1 under the regulation of the insulin promoter enhanced β-cell proliferation and survival in vivo, significantly delaying diabetes progression in NOD mice, and reversing disease in ∼10% of treated NOD mice. These results demonstrate the ability to reverse hyperglycemia in NOD mice with established diabetes by in vivo gene transfer to β-cells of immunomodulatory factors and β-cell growth factors.
