The destruction of beta cells causes Type-1 diabetes. People suffering from diabetes have to depend on artificial insulin to keep the blood sugar level under check.

The research by team of scientists is one of the major breakthroughs in science; the findings are published in scientific journals.

Delivering the valedictory address of Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering's (SJCE) Golden Jubilee celebrations in Mysuru, Dr. Kalam said, "I am hopeful that a permanent cure for diabetes can be found in the next three years."

However, the researchers are still continuing to find out the reasons for the pancreatic cells to stop working.
