Talk about timely with talk of stem cell research heading the news this week.

The American Diabetes Association, which always keeps up to date on new research, just notified subscribers of "In Diabetes Today" that stem cells may make insulin cells.

Indeed, research conducted by Edward Baetge and colleagues at Novocell Inc. in San Diego "suggests the possibility of turning human embryonic stem cells into pancreatic cells that can be used for diabetes therapy," UPI reported

The study was reported online in Nature Biotechnology.
