Re: [IPp] Stem cell treatment reverses diabetes: Argentine researchers

Probably. There are two pieces to the puzzle.
1) regenerate/replace beta cells
2) keep the immune system from repeating its past performance.

There are two research tracks.
1) Iacocca, Argentine (and others)
2) vaccine to prevent T1 (human trials in Israel)

When both of these are perfected, there will be a cure for people with 
T1
