[IP] Re Review of Discovery Health Show

Shawna said:
I'd really be interested in a follow-up to the woman in the first part of the
show to see where she is now since her Islet
Cell Transplant.  Is she back on insulin?

and George said:
I, also was very interested in the part of the show concerning islet cell
transplants.  They said there is a Doctor somewhere in Mexico who is
harvesting beta cells from pig pancreases, encapsulating them in an envelope
made of seaweed, and injecting them into humans.  The seaweed envelope is not
rejected by the human body, and therefore the injectees did not require immune
suppressant  drugs.  Does anyone know the name of this Doctor and where in
Mexico these trials are taking place?
