"They say that the bodies are beginning a new way of producing insulin," said Luiza Ghila, from Bergen University. The researchers found that 2% of the cells in the surrounding pancreas could change their identity.
However, even though this figure allows researchers to optimize their approach to new treatment approaches.
The researchers described mechanisms behind the cell identity process. It turns out that this is not a passive process, but it is the result of signals from surrounding cells. In the research, researchers were able to increase cells with 5% insulin production, using drugs that affect cell signaling process
