Researchers at Joslin have made some headway in the challenge to regrow beta cells–a key to curing diabetes in all of its forms–recently announcing their discovery that a protein produced in the liver increases the rate of beta cell growth. The protein, called serpinB1, was studied in humans, mice and zebrafish. In all three organisms the protein showed a positive correlation to beta cell growth. And in one striking experiment, beta cells that had been completely wiped out began to grow again. Read more about this #InspiredResearch here.
