==============================
Harvard Medical School researchers at Boston Childrenīs Hospital have 

reversed type 1 diabetes in mice by infusing blood stem cells 
pretreated to produce more of a protein called PD-L1, which is 
deficient in mice and people with type 1 diabetes.

The stem cells curbed the autoimmune reaction in cells from both mice 

and humans and reversed hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) in diabetic 
mice.

Almost all the mice were cured of diabetes in the short term. One 
third maintained normal blood sugar levels for the duration of their 
lives.
