The Bilary Tree for Adult Stem Cells

by

bilary treeThe DRI may have identified stem cells that can become insulin-producing cells to be used in the BioHub. The information was published on DRI tv.

Scientists have found stem cells that can proliferate into insulin-producing cells in a small duct that connects the liver and the pancreas. These special stem cells are found in the bilary tree.

The hopeful news about bilary tree stem cells is that they are pancreatic precursor cells. Researchers know that it takes a certain type of stem cell to become an insulin-producing cell and bilary tree stem cells have the x-factor.

The bilary tree is a part of the bilary system. The bilary system helps with digestion. The star enzymatic players in digestion are found in the bilary system. It only seems natural that the stem cells with the capacity to become insulin-producing cells are found here.

As much as this is Greek to me, the promise that there is light at the end of the dark stem cell tunnel is uplifting. We are light years ahead of where we were at this time, last year. All of us with a dream of curing T1D can sleep well tonight knowing that we will be even closer tomorrow.
