Can the density of native pancreatic tissue slices predict human islet isolation and purification outcome?
INTRODUCTION: With currently available technology, the outcomes of human islet isolation and purification are still inconsistent, in part due to a lack of control of the pancreas donor and the procurement conditions. Using a single donor pancreas, the critical islet mass for establishing insulin independence of approximately 5000 engrafted islet equivalents (IEQ)/kg of recipient weight can only be retrieved from about one third of isolations. The purpose of this study was to analyze whether s...Expand abstract
