Lab-Grown Pancreas Reverse Diabetes in Mice
from Asian Scientist Magazine
Mouse pancreases grown in rats generate functional, insulin-producing cells that can reverse diabetes when transplanted into mice with the disease, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Tokyo. These findings, published in
, suggest that a similar technique could one day be used to generate matched, transplantable human organs in large animals like pigs or sheep.
