In brief: Incretins

Animal models show that incretinsanimal agents, so called glp-1 such as byetta, can preserve and regenerate beta cells in the pancreas.
It remains to be seen if such observation takes place in humans.

In brief: Insulin

None at the moment, although there are some researchers (emory university in atlanta) who are working on islet cell transplants.
Islet cells are the cells in the pancreas that make insulin.
