1. Implantation-Site Dependent Differences in Engraftment and Function of Transplanted Pancreatic Islets
Sammanfattning : Transplanting pancreatic islets into the liver through the portal vein is currently the most common procedure in clinical islet transplantations for treating patients with brittle type 1 diabetes. However, most islet grafts fail within a 5-year period necessitating retransplantation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels, is a complex process involving several cell types and molecular signals. Excessive vascular growth is a problem in tumors, and insufficient vascularization hampers the function of transplanted insulin-producing pancreatic islets. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : AbstractCystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by mutations in the anion channel and protein regulator CFTR. The most common co-morbidity in CF is CF-related diabetes (CFRD) affecting ~50% of adult patients. The etiopathology of CFRD is largely unknown but the destruction of the exocrine pancreas is thought to contribute. LÄS MER
4. Microcirculation in native and transplanted rodent pancreatic islets with special reference to the influence of diabetes mellitus
Sammanfattning : The aim of the present work was to characterize the islet microcirculation in animal models of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well as in islets transplanted to diabetic or normoglycemic recipients. For this purpose, a microsphere technique was evaluated and applied for measurements of islet blood flow in mice. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Transplantation of pancreatic islets is a potential treatment of type 1 diabetes that aims to restore normal blood glucose control. By encapsulating the islets in alginate, they can be protected from rejection. LÄS MER
