BACKGROUND In this study, we carried out bone marrow and foetal liver cell transplantation to determine if these cells could differentiate into pancreatic beta-cells or promote regeneration. METHODS To exclude an artificial or immunological influence for induction of diabetes to recipients, Akita mice, which develop diabetes spontaneously,were used. In… CONTINUE READING
