On the way home from work today I heard some good news from the University of Alberta. They have a really active Diabetes research program here and have recently announced a major breakthrough. They successfully cured diabetes in monkeys by transplanting Islet cells from neo-natal pigs.Â Â This is huge! Diabetes is such a common disease and makes life miserable for so many people.
You can read more about it here.
Â p.s. I’m going on a little trip to the coast to visit the real mother hen.Â Back in a few days 🙂
