Scientists grow working human beta cells that can end diabetes in mice

Scientists grow working human beta cells that can end diabetes in mice Since we know that diabetes has to do with defective or missing beta cells, we have a very obvious candidate for treatment: Put in functioning beta cells to replace the bad or missing ones.The problem has always been growing those replacement cells properly, directing early-stage stem cells with the ability to “differentiate” into most possible cells to become specifically fully adult pancreatic beta cells.

Researchers develop 'breathalyzer' that can detect diabetes

Researchers develop 'breathalyzer' that can detect diabetes Breathalyzers to detect alcohol intoxication have existed for years, as the relationship between blood-alcohol content and alcohol in the breath is well understood.A team of researchers from Oxford University have succeeded in building a device that can flag patients as diabetic without the need for a blood test.
