Date:10/13/2008

Award recognizes biotechnological advancements on the path to cure diabetes

with cells from pigs

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A population of high-health 'medical- grade' pigs may be the missing link for the diabetes cure. By raising premier source pigs in a biosecure facility, Spring Point Project, a non-profit organization created to expedite the widespread availability of islet tissue (insulin-producing cells of the pancreas), is taking an important step on the path to realize the cure for diabetes.

Spring Point Project is pleased to announce that recently several litters of second generation piglets have been born in the Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation (DRWF) Islet Resource Facility, a biosecure animal facility in Western Wisconsin built and operated by Spring Point Project. The birth of these piglets signifies exciting advancements for the organization because these are the first pigs that can serve as donor of islet cells suitable for transplantation in diabetes patients.

In partnership with the Diabetes Institute for Immunology and Transplantation of the University of Minnesota, Spring Point Project works closely in providing the science and technology needed to move toward the cure for diabetes. First clinical trials are slated to start within a year and a half, and Spring Point Project will provide the donor animals of islets to be transplanted in patients with diabetes.

The organization's progress is getting recognized. Spring Point Project is a finalist for the 2008 Tekne Biotechnology Award. Presented by the Minnesota High Tech Association in partnership with LifeScience En
