Stem cells cure Type 1 diabetes

Jacob sez, "A stem cell treatment has cured type 1 diabetes in 14 of 15 people during experimental tests."
14 of the 15 patients were insulin-free for some time following the treatment. Eleven of those were able to dispense with supplemental insulin immediately following the infusion of stem cells and have not had recourse to synthetic insulin since then...

"As a research scientist I am always hesitant to speak of a cure, but the initial results have been good and show the importance of conducting more trials," Dr Burt said.
