A documentary about encapsulated islet cell transplants VIDEO

Hey everyone! Here in New Zealand a documentary screened on telly about the work of Professor Bob Elliot and his company LCT Global.

You can watch the video here for the next couple of days: http://tvnz.co.nz/xeno-a-cure-for-diabetes/video-4261364

It's all about encapsulated pig-islet cell transplants for Type 1 Diabetes. It's technology that's currently in clinical trials. It's NOT claiming to be a cure, but they have seen good results in the way it relieves the "roller coaster" fluctuations, and also relieves hypo-unawareness.

So please click on over and watch the documentary while it is still available. It follows a clinical trial participant, and shows her mainly in the lead-up to having her first transplant. Plus, it has cute piggie-wiggies in it! :)

Thank you for posting this. I haven't seen it yet and it is one trial I really try to keep up with. I have high hopes for this line of research for the cure.

I would have liked to see the video, but apparently canadians are not allowed to see it.
