"I don't think the dogs ever grow beta cells or islets. I believe that the DNA is taken up by the muscle cells themselves and they just start churning out the proteins that are coded in that DNA, one being insulin. Does that make sense, or do…"

"There is a huge gap in that article I just read it. It makes it seem like one injection and the animals were magically cured. I mean Beta cells would take a while to grow at least wouldn't they? there is no mention of how the genes fix the…"

"The tone of that article strikes me as weird even if it is the NIH. Like this: Trucco said he doesn't believe this therapy could translate to humans. "Human beings are not clones of dogs. Beta cells are more complicated than muscle cells.…"

rubidoux replied to Pavlos's discussion 'Type 1 Diabetes Cured in Dogs.'
"So, you mean, once the cells are altered, we don't have any way to undo it or get rid of them? I feel like there should be a way that's not beyond our means. Like, if we can mark and then target cancer cells to kill them (which I think we…"

"You may have me on that one actually, although as far as I know there's multiple antigens involved: insulin, GAD, and islet (I've not found any research as to what the specific characteristic they go after- if you find out, I'd be…"

Holger Schmeken replied to Pavlos's discussion 'Type 1 Diabetes Cured in Dogs.'
"I think ferringb is wrong. Actually the trick to reprogram the muscle cells is dangerous but efficient. The muscles cells will still have the signature of muscle cells - even if they produce insulin. Thus the immune system will not attack them.…"

*blush* Thank you for your comments on our baby girl. I'm so excited to meet her! We see her again in another ultrasound tomorrow. Since I'm high risk, we see her about once per month. She is 24 weeks this week. Almost done!

I look forward to your email. :)

Hi Pavlos!! Just checking in! I'm now 5 months pregnant and expecting a little girl. :) We are closing on a house today and moving in this weekend. It took nearly a year to find a house we liked. A1c is 6.5% and dropping. yay! Hope everything is great with you too!

Thanks! I guess it's prolly been a little over a week since I got spammed from you. I'll take the restriction off your email address then, so I receive your emails again. :) I'll try to remember to log into my account when I get home from work to read what you've written! :)

Hey, no I didnt get it. I'm still getting spammed from your email address, so it might have gone right to junk mail. Can you re-send it and tell me what the subject line is so that I know which one to open?

Hi Pavlos! Just popped in to say hello. Abby said hi to me a few days ago after the insulin shock coma. What a damper, huh? Hope you are well along with your two babies! Write me sometime. You've got my email and address. :) I'm putting together a type 1 based book / collection of short stories and poems. If you'd like to include something... I'd be honored to see what you've got? Want to write a short story about type 1? Interested? It's going to be published by Spring 2011. Got about a month and a half or so?

Things are fantastic. Just thought I'd pop in and say hi, Pavlos. Hope your baby is happy, healthy and you guys are enjoying this time together. I hope to talk to you soon! Miss you and think of you.

Things are getting better. I just got approved for an apartment last night. Going to be moving in on next saturday. I've wanted to live in this apartment for about three years now. I'll be on the 21st floor. haha. Like my own little Manhattan because I can't afford to live in NYC. haha. It should be fun. Will be scary to be on my own for a while, but it will turn into something exhilarating, i'm sure.

He and I have stopped reading to each other. That lasted about a week. haha. Life is starting to get in the way and I'm just ready to get on my own now. Tired of this in-between stuff. All my stuff is in boxes and I don't feel like I have a home, even though his parents already told me to stay as long as I want to. Just ready to paint the new apartment, move my stuff in, and settle my roots.
