July 11th, 2009 LONDON - Scientists may have moved a step closer to developing a potential new treatment for diabetes, by finding that human liver cells can be transformed into something like the beta cells that produce insulin in a healthy pancreas. Sarah Ferber of the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, Israel, says that the new findings have enabled her research team to implant these cells into diabetic monkeys.
