Research: Cure

Question from Cairo, Egypt:

Are there any islet cell transplantation trials for children?

Answer:

There is no such islet cell transplantation trial involving children anywhere in the world. This is a highly experimental procedure at present. It has lots of potential, but is not yet ready, I’m sorry to say.
