In this episode of DRI tv, Drs. Giacomo Lanzoni and Luca Inverardi discuss a potential source of insulin-producing cells - right within our own body! Their focus: a small duct that connects the liver and pancreas called the biliary tree. It's lined with stem cells and it may hold the key for producing a plentiful supply of insulin-producing cells.
