In India a city-based private hospital today claimed to have cured six diabetic children by using stem cell therapy.
“We have cured six children suffering from diabetes type-1 by the use of stem cell therapy,” Dr Rohit Kapur, Medical Director & Heart and Diabetes Specialist in Carewell Super specialist Hospital, told a press conference here.
He claimed the stem cell centre in the hospital is the first of its kind in Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.
Children suffering from type-1 diabetes have to remain dependent on insulin for whole life.
