Encapsulated human islet cells can normalize blood sugar levels in mice for up to 6 months

This study evaluates a mouse model of diabetes having implanted encapsulated insulin-producing cells derived from human stem cells and maintained long-term control of blood sugar — without administering immunosuppressant drugs.

The results of the multi-institutional effort are published in Nature Medicine.
