  16. Farhan Samin

    My 12-year-old sister is affected with type-1 diabetes. Is it possible to reverse type-1 diabetes? Any medicine to cure T1D in Bangladesh?

  17. Hal Lamb

    Thanks doctor. Hasn’t privately held Viacyte, another JDRF supported company, already managed to differentiate and incapsulate stem cell derived pancreatic stem cells? Is this somehow new and different? Nevertheless, it seems any mention of a “cure” is premature until someone figures out how to selectively turn off just the immune response to attack insulin producing cells.

  18. Old Mate

    Now we just watch the greedy corporations quash this as fast as they can

  19. Bhuvana Jegadeesh
