Does islet size really influence graft function following clinical islet transplantation?

Abstract:

Background It has been proposed that islet transplants comprised primarily of small rather than large islets may provide better graft function, due to their lower susceptibility to hypoxic damage. Our aim was to determine whether islet size correlated with in vivo graft function in islet transplant recipients with C peptide negative type 1 diabetes when islets have undergone pre-transplant islet culture.

Methods Human pancreatic islets were isolated...
