Insulin is produced from the beta cells in Islet cells present in pancreas. If the production of insulin is reduced due to improper functioning of beta cells, it is identified as diabetes. Most of the organs in the human body can be transplanted but pancreas cannot be transplanted as it leads to some problems. For this reason medicines and insulin injections are given fin the treatment of diabetes. There are Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 in diabetes. For type 1 and Type 2 type of diabetes, insulin injection is used. Islet cells in pancreas cannot transplant into the liver directly and this treatment is available abroad. These treatments are in research stage and the treatment is much expensive also. The same technology is taken by the Asian Institute of Gastro-enterology doctors and research is being done since three years in association with National Institute of Nutrition, Department of Biotechnology and Indian Research Council. Good results were obtained when the technology was tested on monkeys. Later the treatment was given to Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes patients who were using insulin injection which worked wonderfully.

A small capsule of two inches long and half inch wide, which is called Theracyte is filled with Islet cells and is transplanted in to the body of the diabetes patient. The islet cells transplanted into the body provide the necessary insulin to the body. Once islet cell transplantation is done, they work for more than five years. Later islet cells can be transplanted again.

Along with Asian Gastro-enterology, Hyderabad another four centres will be launched in Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi for Islet transplantation treatment. Medical experts estimate that there will India will soon become the international capital for diabetic patients. Presently there are more than 6.40 crore patients n India.
