    But…but…but…this was only supposed to come from embryonic stem cells! We were called idiots because we were opposed to all the money going to embryonic studies and intead going to the better promise of adult stem cells. Thank goodness for the private sector!

    Won’t work for long if you don’t cure the underlying condition that causes type 1 in the first place. You will just have diabetes again in a few years. At least that is the way I understand it from Faustman’s research.

    But this won’t work unless you cure the underlying problem/disease cause you will have diabetes back in a few years anyway. At least that is what I got from Dr Faustman’s research.

    This is so encouraging. Not only because it gives us hope, but because it shows that science and ethics can mix! I’m glad to know that other options are being explored apart from destroying embryos. If we can avoid that at all, I’d feel a lot better about any cure that benefits me later.
