Once a year treatment for diabetics

Promising research has shown that it could be possible to inject ‘T-regs’ cells into a person suffering from diabetes. These cells protect insulin-making cells from the immune system, however, people suffering  from  Type 1 diabetes do not have enough of them. This could remove the need for daily injections of insulin and replace it with a once a year treatment.
