Cure Diabetes by Injection of Micro Pancreas Cell Therapy

Project description

Novel micro-organ to restore natural insulin production and regulate blood glucose levels

Lifelong insulin administration is the only therapeutic approach for diabetes patients to prevent the disease's significant and often life-threatening complications. However, the need for daily injections, the constant blood glucose monitoring and dietary constraints constitute a great nuisance in the everyday life of patients. The EU-funded Micro Pancreas project is developing a revolutionary regenerative micro-organ which can be implanted under the skin to restore natural insulin production and regulate blood glucose levels. The micro-pancreas consists of a 3D scaffold built from human pancreatic islets, thereby minimising immune responses in patients and improving islet viability and function.
