  2. Spider Web Inspired Removable Implant May Control Type 1 Diabetes

    A World Health Organization report estimates that around 1,11,500 children live with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) at a time. In Type 1 diabetes, pancreatic cell clusters that produce insulin are killed off by the body's immune system. The disease is one of the most frequent paediatric endocrine illnesses & accounts for only about 5%-10% of all cases of diabetes. A research team led by Cornell University has created a device that may help manage Type 1 Diabetes. This device helps implant 1000s of insulin-producing islet cells into a patient. The cells are protected by a thin hydrogel coating, which are attached to a polymer thread. The polymer thread makes it easy to remove & replace the cells, which have outlived their usefulness....
