Diabetes Treatments of the Future: Insulin-Producing Cell Implants

A new approach to regenerating insulin production in people with type 1 diabetes is gaining steam in California. An alternative to the often-discussed technological improvements leading to a closed loop insulin delivery system, the insulin-producing cell implants are a biological solution to the issue of non-insulin producing pancreases (a challenge we know as type 1 […]
