    Well, this could be promising. Will keep an eye on it.

    I know this shouldn't matter but it kinda annoys me that the people selected for the trials are people who don't really look after themselves and are in "most need". We'll all be bottom of the list because we actually care about our health and have learnt to look out for ourselves.

    It says "The patient was selected based on the protocol criteria for poor control of blood glucose. Despite meticulous specialist supervision of frequent daily insulin injections, he has continuing frequent episodes of high blood glucose, high glycated hemoglobin levels (HbA1c) and unacceptable swings including low blood glucose levels (hypoglycemia)."
