  6. Preclinical characterization of THR to induce pancreatic beta cell regeneration Phase I

    SBC: Ophysio Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    The exocrine acinar ductal compartment of the pancreas has been hypothesized to harbor progenitor cells with the ability to give rise to new b cells The activation of such progenitors may potentially result in new b cell formation through differentiation rather than reprogramming We hypothesized that if pancreatic progenitors existed they would respond to bone morphogenetic protein BMP ...
