I say wait and see. Some years ago there wsa experimentation with turning some liver cells into insulin producing cells that had shown results in animal trials, and I believe in some human trials, but I haven't heard anything about it since. They were using some kind of gene manipulation.
In nay case, there's a long gap between animal trials and market release of any new medical product. I wouldn't look for anything soon. I hope something like this will benefit the next generation, but I was told in 1969 that a genetic cure for diabetes was only about 10 years away. It's been a long decade.
