Pancreatic Cells Originated from Human Skin Revert Diabetes in Mice

Researchers from the Gladstone Institutes and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) have created for the first time functional pancreatic cells from human skin cells. Diabetic mice transplanted with the insuline-producing cells could control their glucose levels. The innovative cell reprogramming protocol will allow to scale up cell production¬†and use them in disease modelling, […]
