Stem Cell Therapy For Diabetes Type 1 and Type 2
New treatments and advances in research are giving new approach to people suffering from diabetes type 1 and diabetes type 2. Mesenchymal stem cell therapy for diabetes type 1 and diabetes type 2 may help patients who don’t respond to typical drug treatment. The researchers are currently studying about adult adipose stem cell therapy as an alternative treatment to manage the complications associated with diabetes type 1 and type 2. The stem cells extracted from a patient may have the potential to reduce countless cells of the body, insulin producing cells included. In 2004, the university of Pittsburgh grew insulin producing beta cells by introducing two genes ‘cdk’ and ‘cyclin d’ via a virus. The researchers were able to deactivate the virus and also prevent stem cells from growing further. To cure type 1diabetes, stem cell replacement needs to be more than simply a case of swapping insulin-producing cells from a healthy pancreas with those destroyed by diabetes in a diabetic patient.
