The Washington Post reports a group of scientists developed a “method of growing billions of precious insulin-secreting cells en masse using human stem cells.”
The transplanted cells “would have the ability to read out the amount of sugar in the blood and squirt out just the right amount of the hormone insulin.”
This innovation could be groundbreaking for diabetes treatment, allowing patients to not have to worry about taking their daily medication. The scientists will now work to replicate this therapy in humans.
