Potential Therapy for Type-1 Diabetes Found in Pancreatic Cells

These significant findings open the door to developing regenerative cell therapies for those living with type 1 diabetes, addressing a major challenge that stands in the way of discovering a biological cure for the disease. The existence of progenitor cells within the human pancreas that can be stimulated to develop into glucose-responsive beta cells has been confirmed by a research team at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
