Swiss scientists have created an alternative to insulin injections

Currently, the only effective remedy against diabetes mellitus is regular insulin injections. Many scientists from all over the world trying to find some alternative. And, it seems, recently it was done a group of researchers from Switzerland, which created a special implant, completely relieving the diabetic from having to constantly poke myself with a needle.

Responsible For the development of staff Higher technical school of Switzerland in Zurich. The implant is a cluster of cells and receptors, prisoners under the special shell. Synthesized from the modified implant renal cells. They are able to store in itself the insulin and release it after the receptor of the implant will affect the triggering substance. The most interesting just the same is this very substance.

"the Trigger, which trigger receptors of the implant is caffeine, that is, patients need to drink coffee or other caffeinated beverage in order to control the level of insulin and glucose levels in the blood. This approach is much more convenient and socially acceptable than regular injections that affect people living with diabetes."

Now the implants are tested on laboratory animals, and all tests ended very successfully. Therefore, in the near future to begin large-scale research study involving people suffering from diabetes. Scientists suggest that such implants will be on the market within 10 years.
