Researchers from The University of Tokyo developed a novel fiber-shaped hydrogel transplant for the treatment of type 1 diabetes mellitus. They showed that pancreatic cells encapsulated in 1.0-mm-thick hydrogel fibers normalized blood glucose levels in diabetic mice while being protected from foreign body reactions. These findings help facilitate cell-based therapies for type 1 diabetes mellitus.
