    We’ve established a nonhuman primate islet allotransplant model to address questions such as whether transplanting islets into the gut’s arterial system would more safely and as effectively support long-term islet allograft survival compared with the traditional portal vein...

    Studies in nonhuman primates have demonstrated that elevation of the cytotoxic lymphocyte (CL) genes granzyme B, perforin, and Fas ligand in peripheral blood precedes islet allograft rejection. The purpose of this study was to determine whether this approach has utility for prediction of human...

  • Interventional Strategies to Prevent β-Cell Apoptosis in Islet Transplantation. Emamaullee, Juliet A.; Shapiro, A. M. James // Diabetes;Jul2006, Vol. 55 Issue 7, p1907 

    A substantial proportion of the transplanted islet mass falls to engraft due to death by apoptosis, and a number of strategies have been explored to inhibit β-cell loss. Inhibition of extrinsic signals of apoptosis (i.e., cFLIP or A20) have been explored in experimental islet transplantation...
