    “DM) In your opinion, what is the most promising approach to islet cell transplants currently being studied at the DRI? By promising, I mean closest to actually being available to mainstream patients within the next 5 to 10 years?”

    A New Zealand based company called Living Cell Technology is beginning human clinical trials of an encapsulated porcine islet cell transplant (announced within the last couple of weeks). If you are looking for the best near-term hope, this is probably it.

    It makes me feel good to know that others are working every day to help my son and the others that deal with this disease.
