"I know Dr. Denise Faustman's work. The proposed moderation of the rogue behaving t-cells with BCG is indeed promising. Patience is all we need and your experience is the same than mine. It just takes another 10 years to get there..."

"One correction: I wrote: "for an islet cell transplant you will have to sign a paper that states you have been informed about the risks of this treatment" But I meant: "for a stem cell transplant you will have to sign a paper that…"

"Holger, I was diagnosed with T1 diabetes in 1952. Since then I must have been told at least twice per year that diabetes will be cured within five years. If there even was a cure it would be 10 years before the FDA approved it. The Feds still…"

"Just for clarification: for an islet cell transplant you will have to sign a paper that states you have been informed about the risks of this treatment. Risks that are higher than those of Diabetes Type 1 in my opinion. With the new method a tiny…"

"I read a similar account of the islet cell and stem cell applications which is why they switched to stem cells. I don't know because islet cell transplant is already done but doesn't last very long in most people if it is effective. Maybe,…"

"Holger - I've read that it takes two cadaver donations for an islet cell transplant. I've also read that it is the supply that limits these procedures. I don't know a great deal about this science but I understand that embryonic stem…"

"I can not recall exactly how old this membrane idea really is now. Maybe 15 years +/- 5. First they wanted to encapsulate cells from other humans, then pig cells and now human embryonic stem cells. The autoimmune reaction can not penetrate the…"

"this actually brought tears to my eyes. i dont care about having to wait 15 or 20 years for something like this. it sounds amazing and liberating! this or smart insulin-anything that hasnt got a gazillion pieces of hardware like a bionic pancreas!"

"http://viacyte.com/products/vc-01-diabetes-therapy/ I can't find any info about clinical trials at their site yet. I emailed to ask about this. My endo said, referring to encapsulation, that he doesn't think it will really happen for 10-15…"

"Assuming (hoping) that this device proves its worth through all phases of clinical trials, would anyone care to speculate when it will finally be on the market?"

"Sounds good, is this the same as encapsulation where you won't need anti-rejection drugs?"

"While this is a promising direction, my favorite treatment research is Smart Insulin, and I'm hoping like mad that it succeeds. The idea of taking an injection once a day, once a week, whatever schedule, that simply responds to BG directly is a…"

"I agree completely. And I hope you're wrong about the cure :-) Follow / Show me the money... the T2 market is where the money is. In my view, as a T2, success with this will, as you say, spur much more research to get that 2' x 2'…"
