Stem Cell Therapy in Diabetes
Stem cells used to cure type I diabetes is a replacement to conventional therapy which aims at swapping insulin-delivering cells from a healthy pancreas with those annihilated by diabetes in a diabetic patient. It is conceivable to treat Type 1 diabetes by transplanting confined islet cells, containing beta cells or even an entire pancreas into the patient from a contributor using the tissue engineering approach. Pancreatic stem cell or islets of Langerhans are a large groups of cells scattered all through the pancreas among which beta cells are capable of producing hormone insulin for body. Transplants can empower the body to recover control of glucose levels so administrating insulin is never required again.
