JDRF has an interesting report about a new trial for Type 1 diabetics where a stem cell is injected into a person to produce insulin. The cell is encapsulated so it resists the diabetics auto-immune attacks. Check it out.

This has been a hot topic in our discussion board for a while now. How exciting that it's getting to this point. I really hope that this works. It's one of the least invasive "cure" initiatives. It's very exciting!!
