Introduction: According to a previously published protocol for the generation of Insulin-producing cells from human monocytes we now analyzed wether the addition of 4 different growth factors could optimize Insulin production. Secondly we tried to generate these cells from non-human primate monocytes[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
