Destruction of insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas is at the heart of type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Researchers at Cedars-Sinai's Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute have found that a blood vessel-building gene boosts the ability of human bone marrow stem cells to sustain pancreatic recovery in a laboratory mouse model of insulin-dependent diabetes.
A rare genetic disorder has given researchers at the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Exeter, a surprising insight into how the pancreas develops.

MIT cancer biologists have identified a subpopulation of cells that can give rise to pancreatic cancer.
Scientists have identified a master regulator gene for early embryonic development of the pancreas and other organs, putting researchers closer to coaxing stem cells into pancreatic cells as a possible cure for type1 diabetes.
For years researchers have been searching for a way to treat diabetics by reactivating their insulin-producing beta cells, to no avail. Now, they may be one step closer.
