    TLDR;
    "The results of this study support the hypothesis that enterovirus infections may
    contribute to the development of T1D. CBV1 may especially have a specific role in
    triggering and accelerating the disease process. However, confirmation of causality
    between the enterovirus infections and the disease needs additional studies, such as
    intervention trials with vaccinations or antiviral drugs."
