    [FONT=&amp]If you are interested in potential cures for type-1 diabetes, then I urge you to read this report from the JDCA about Stem Cells Arabia:[/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]Stem Cells Arabia is in the middle of a clinical trial were they combine two stem cell procedures as a possible cure for type-1 diabetes. However, the real excitement is fueled by the results of a very small pilot study they did previously. The results from the pilot study were presented at a conference, but not published in a journal. But those results are very strong: all four treated patients went months without needing to inject insulin and never needed anti-rejection drugs. If you find that exciting (and I certainly do), then you'll want to read the JDCA report which contains more details, and you'll be looking forward to the results of their larger trial, which is expected to complete in early 2019.[/FONT]

My daughter has type-1 diabetes and participates in clinical trials, which might be discussed here. My blog contains a more complete non-conflict of interest statement. Thanks to everyone who helps with the blog.[/FONT]
