    Very good news, Ann. Wonder if they will pursue study in pediatric age groups?

      I think so! According to Dr. Levetan, she was inspired by a pediatric patient she was working with.  I'll keep you posted.

    I love it!! This just made my day!  I am patiently waiting for a pancreas transplant.  I had one in '06 but I got an infection and they had to take it out after only 2 weeks!  So, now I have antibodies and am a hard match.  I am also going to have a kidney transplant, my brother is my exact match. 

    I have had diabetes 40 years.  I have worked for JDRF in the past and for the Diabetes Treatment Centers of America.  If you ever need a person to be in a trial give me a shout.

    Thank you for your happy news.
