The Cure!!! 

Australian doctors may have cured type I diabetes. They transplanted insular cells, which produce insulin and are absent in diabetics, into patients' livers (I'm not sure why livers), and they are doing well so far. If this turns out to be a real cure, it will be AMAZING. Diabetes is an expensive, unpleasant, and all too common disease: getting rid of it would do wonders.
