Diabetes 1 Breakthrough: Researchers Are Now Able to Create Insulin-Producing Cells

After years of trying, researchers finally were able to transform human stem cells into mature cells that produce insulin. In the long term, this can cure people with diabetes.  It can change the lives of millions of people worldwide with type 1 diabetes. For the first time, according to a study published in the journal Nature Cell Biology, American researchers have successfully transformed human stem cells into mature cells that produce insulin in the laboratory. This success is the result of many years of work.  The cells produced were trapped in an immature stage where they could not respond adequately … Continue reading Diabetes 1 Breakthrough: Researchers Are Now Able to Create Insulin-Producing Cells
