Experts claim that it might be possible to repair insulin-producing tissue affected by the disease. They suggested stem cells from embryos can evolve and turn into cells able to provide insulin.
The news saying that a revolutionary medical procedure might cure diabetes was first published by the Nature Biotechnology journal.
"The efficient, reproducible production of human embryonic stem cell derived, insulin producing endocrine cells through a process that mirrors the development of human pancreatic cells represents a critical step towards providing a renewable source of cells for diabetes therapy. This provides a foundation upon which we can build a standardized process for generating functional insulin-producing cells for the treatment of diabetic patients," revealed Emmanuel Baetge, Novocell's chief scientific officer.
Novocell's representatives announced that the company is hoping to make the treatment available in less than three years.
Diabetes is a disease that affects the production of insuline, a hormone that controls the blood sugar levels.
Nearly 20 millions US citizens suffer from diabetes, but what is of more concern is the fact that nearly 33 percent of them are unaware.
