Washington: Researchers have shown that mice`s pancreas have cells, which are capable of being converted into insulin-producing beta cells.They also demonstrated that all pancreatic beta cells can be regenerated several times and that chemically-induced diabetes in mice can thus be "treated" repeatedly.Type I diabetes, characterised by the selective loss of pancreatic, insulin-producing beta cells, is a condition that affects more than 30 million people worldwide.In 2009, researchers at the Valrose Biology Institute (Inserm/University Nice Sophia Antipolis) managed to convert glucagon-producing a cells into beta cells in young mice.
