diabetes overview - daily injections

Diabetes is a disorder characterized by hyperglycemia or elevated blood sugar, a disorder which occurs as a result of autoimmune destruction of insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas. Type 1 diabetes is fatal unless treated with a regular and ongoing insulin replacement therapy program which delivers insulin most commonly via injections, pump or inhalation.


The general public tends to view all diabetes as similar, which is grossly off the mark. Type 1 diabetes is usually caused by an autoimmune destruction of pancreatic beta-cells. Type 2 diabetes is almost always caused by insulin resistance (insulin present but it cannot function due to undocking to its own receptors), usually related to incorrect dietary intake, stress and lack of exercise—poor lifestyle choices.

ALTuCELL Inc. is an early stage biotechnology company backed by sound research and science, dedicated to fulfilling a large "unmet need" in cell, molecular and regenerative therapy for treatment of Diabetes Mellitus. The company’s proprietary and unique technology like nothing in the world, overcomes the major barriers to transplantation by a novel strategy made of micro-encapsulated Sertoli cells for non-immunosuppressed patients with type 1 and type II diabetes.
