Duration: 0:13:10 | Added: 03 Apr 2017
Paul Johnson (Professor of Paediatric Surgery) gives a talk on a new treatement for Type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune disease where the patient’s body has attacked its own insulin-producing cells.

It largely starts in childhood and is treated with insulin injections. An alternative approach is transplant – either of the whole pancreas, a major operation, or the much less invasive transplantation of islet cells (the islets of Langerhans). This talk discusses the development of this treatment and its future potential.
