New pathway to cheap insulin

ScienceDaily (2010-06-01) -- Researchers have now developed a new method to cheaply produce insulin for the treatment of diabetes.


They found the yeast Pichia pastoris and modified the cells so that they produce the building block for insulin while growing on a special medium.
