Porcine islet graft function is affected by pretreatment with a caspase-3 inhibitor.

Abstract:

During the isolation procedure and after transplantation islets are subjected to numerous variables associated with the induction of apoptosis. The present study investigated the effect of transient pretreatment with caspase inhibitors on function and survival of transplanted pig islets. Isolated porcine islets (3000 IEQ) were incubated overnight in 200 microM of the caspase-3 inhibitor DEVD-CMK prior to transplantation into diabetic nude mice. Glucose-stimulated insulin release of pretreated...
