Advancing Innovative Stem Cell-based Therapy for Diabetes in Europe

Project description

Islets could change the medical landscape for diabetes patients

Diabetes is characterised by a high level of blood glucose that can lead to serious health problems. In both type 1 diabetes (T1D) and type 2 diabetes (T2D), this is related to levels of insulin, the hormone produced by the pancreas that enables blood sugar to enter cells and be used for energy. In T2D, insulin production is insufficient or the insulin produced does not work properly. By contrast, in T1D, the body attacks the cells in the pancreas, and they do not make any insulin. Currently, T1D is treated with lifelong insulin therapy via injections or an insulin pump. The EU-funded ISLET project's innovative programme is using stem-cell-based human pancreatic islet cells and developing the quality control assays that will lead to rapid commercialisation of a game-changing therapy for T1D.
