They manage to identify and isolate stem cells from an adult pancreas, and transform them into insulin-producing cells.

The hormone insulin is crucial for him control of glucose levels in the blood. In people with type 1 diabetes, the immune system has destroyed the beta cells of the pancreas, which are the insulin-producing cells.

These people need for lifedaily injections of insulin to control blood glucose levels. But since this control is not perfect, people with type 1 diabetes are at risk for serious long-term health complications.

This new finding is very important, as it implies that people with Diabetes type 1 might be able to regenerate your own insulin-producing cells. Which means they could make their own insulin and regain control of their blood glucose levels.
