“Scientists from the Weizmann Institute in Israel managed to successfully transplant embryonic pancreatic tissue from a pig into a monkey, growing a new pancreas, and effectively treating the primate with type 1 diabetes. As radioimmunoassay tests showed, the technique led to the production of porcine insulin while the vessels running through the new pancreas were the monkey’s own.” – Michael, Medgadget

WHOA! That’s pretty awesome … I hope they can copy that to humans and rid us of Diabetes type 1 once and for all!!
