The pig and its pancreas

han normal, due to the fact that the cells divide less frequently. Thus, the new model system provides a variety of oppurtunities for innovative research on diabetes. Among other things, the system should be ideal for testing and improving therapeutic regimes based on incretins, which already represent an important treatment option. One might also be able to utilize the system in the development of imaging techniques for direct measurement of beta cell mass in patients. Indeed, the Munich team have now established a total of four different genetic models that are relevant to diabetes, and therefore provided researchers with a unique and invaluable research resource.
