According to a report from NPR, there may be a huge breakthrough in the treatment of type-1 diabetes. Scientists in California think that they have found a way to implant a quarter sized flexible membrane under the skin that would release insulin into the body and be protected from the body’s immune system. The implant would have living islet cells from the pancreas and could potentially help the body regulate sugar levels.
It’s exciting promise in the field of science to be sure. We’ll be keeping an eye on the Encellin team as they continue to push through towards a cure. In the meanwhile, join our team in the fight against diabetes by joining our club. We’d love to have you!
