Researchers find a mechanism to improve pancreatic islet transplantation in type 1 diabetes

June 20, 2019
Researchers from the University of Barcelona and IDIBAPS led a study that identifies a protein as the potential modulator in the revascularization of pancreatic islets. In a study conducted on diabetic mice with islet transplant from other animals or human islets, researchers showed that grafts without this protein have a higher revascularization -- favouring the viability of cells -- and regular sugar levels and glucose tolerance are recovered.
