Observations in rat pancreata have revealed that enzymatic islet release is mediated by both collagenase and neutral protease (NP), a critical effector of islet integrity. Since no information is available about the effect of NP activity on islet release from the human pancreas, the present study evaluated the effect of various NP concentrations on the outcome of human islet isolation. METHODS: Following intraductal collagenase distension, pancreata obtained from adult multiorgan donors were ...Expand abstract
