BACKGROUND: Clinical and experimental data indicate that early failure of intraportally grafted islets is caused by inflammation including secretion of cytokines and nitric oxide. Direct inducible nitric oxide synthase suppression may avoid detrimental effects associated with steroid administration. We compared the efficiency of selective and unselective inducible nitric oxide synthase inhibitors with dexamethasone to suppress nitric oxide generation after intraportal islet xenotransplantatio...Expand abstract
