Optimal human islet isolation requires the delivery of bacterial collagenase to the pancreatic islet-exocrine interface. However, we have previously demonstrated the presence of collagenase within human islets immediately following intraductal collagenase administration. This potentially has significant implications for patient safety. The present study aimed to determine if collagenase becomes internalized into islets during the isolation procedure and if it remains within the islet postisol...Expand abstract
