08:47 Gizmag Clustered stem cells become working insulin producers in potential cure for diabetes


Diabetes is defined by the body's inability to keep blood-sugar levels in check, something that is normally handled by insulin. More and more research is tracing this problem back to faulty beta cells in the pancreas that are failing to produce the hormone, and more and more research is uncovering potential pathways to restore their function. Medical scientists have now made a promising breakthrough in this area, describing a novel technology that converts stem cells into insulin-secreting beta cells by harnessing an often overlooked step in their maturation.
