Stem cell breakthrough: patient-specific therapies for type 1 diabetes - Medical News Today

A team of scientists from the New York Stem Cell Foundation Research Institute and Columbia University Medical Center, also in New York, claim to have created the first disease-specific embryonic stem cell line with two sets of chromosomes.

The research began in 2006 as part of an effort to make patient-specific embryonic stem cell lines from people who have type 1 diabetes.

The process behind this innovation is called somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). It involves taking unfertilized donor oocytes - the immature egg cells used in reproduction - and adding to them the nuclei of adult skin cells taken from the patient.
