Cloned cows are capable of producing human insulin in their milk

Posted: Updated:

Scientists in Argentina revealed on April 17th that they have cloned four cows that are capable of producing human insulin in their milk.  That information could be a breakthrough for those with diabetes.

The scientists say the calves will start producing the insulin-infused milk when they reach adulthood.  The breakthrough could mean human insulin at lower costs. 

The company, Bio Sidus, spearheaded the project and wants to open up a pharmaceutical dairy for the insulin producing cows.
