    Diabetes Breakthrough?

    Quoted from the press release: From human embryonic stem cells to billions of human insulin producing cells. Giant step toward new diabetes treatment:

    "There have been previous reports of other labs deriving beta cell types from stem cells, no other group has produced mature beta cells as suitable for use in patients," he said. "The biggest hurdle has been to get to glucose sensing, insulin secreting beta cells, and that's what our group has done."
