Uterine Stem Cells Used to Treat Diabetes in Mice

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 By: National Institutes of Health NIH-funded researchers convert cells from uterine lining into insulin-producing cells. Researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health have converted stem cells from the human endometrium into insulin-producing cells and transplanted them into mice to control the animals’ diabetes. The endometrium, or uterine lining, is a
