Re: [IP] protein and insulin



> What about encapsulated islets. Ever hear of Islet Tecnology, Inc.?

The islets die after about a year or two. The haven't yet figured out 
how to replenish them or remove the dead ones which are imbedded in 
little capsules that your body nicely "grows around". Nice idea, but 
there are some real technical challenges to implementing this as a 
"cure".
