Purdue researchers in collaboration with the IU School of Medicine successfully injected a collagen solution mixed with pancreatic cells into diabetes-induced mice, achieving normal glucose levels for at least 90 days.

Very interesting, SKB, and a great boon to many if perfected. The second study you’ve reported on regarding islet transplant solutions suggesting its an area of considerable attention among researchers.

I wonder where and how donor cells are collected. It wouldn’t seem likely to be able to get the cells from living donors thus limiting options unless they find a way to harvest them trans-species as the article suggests.

You make a very good point. Is that going to be from mice, dogs or humans. Could they be lab grown? I wonder if that's even possible

Like as not pigs if they can do it as our physiologies are peculiarly similar.
