Re: [IP] diabetes cure in mice - Article



From: email @ redacted
Did anybody else read about the study at Mass.General hospital where they 
cured type 1 in mice.

Debby, 
Here's the article my husband got from Yahoo News (Reuters News service)
http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/20010627/sc/health_diabetes_dc_1.html
 - similar to the one from the Boston Globe
(http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/178/nation/MGH_team_cures_Type_1_diabetes_in_mice+.shtml).
 
Pretty exciting research if they really can figure out how to turn off the
islet cell antibodies & just let cells grow.  The articles note that these
specially bred mice have been a pretty realistic model for Type 1.
