Can Type 1 Diabetes Be Cured Permanently?
Lifelong insulin injections are not the most convenient and effective way to control diabetes, so scientists are actively proposing new therapy options.
Professor Slavin talks about the disadvantages of the current approaches, such as transplantation of pancreatic cells or isolation of pancreatic islets from the action of the immune system. He offers his own alternative solution – the use of multipotent stem cells, which are converted inside the body into insulin-producting cells.
If you want to know how this therapy works, who should use it, and whether it can become a panacea for type 1 diabetes mellitus – see Shimon Slavin’s interview.
