[size= small; font-family: verdana, geneva][url=http://www.ctirc.ualberta.ca/]University of Alberta[/url] researchers are going to begin clinical trials in 2014 that they hope will eliminate insulin shots for Type 1 diabetic patients. Once again, like in other similar reserach topics I've posted here at the forums of Diabetes1.org - [url=/forum/New_Research/Do_Pigs_Really_Fly_I_think_these_Auckland_Island_ones_do-19613#68005]pigs[/url] are involved in this study. The team has " developed a method to isolate insulin-producing cells from neonatal pigs and has transplanted them in pre-clinical animal models."

I'll be watching this closely - especially with this being a Canadian - and possible participant. I'm willing to be a guinea pig - would you?
