    Abstract : Solid organ transplantation has evolved from being an experimental procedure to a life-saving treatment for patients with end-stage organ failure. The risk of losing a transplant due to acute rejection is very low with the use of modern immunosuppressive protocols and the short-term results are impressive. READ MORE

    Abstract : Islet transplantation has found its niche in diabetes treatment. It has contributed to a better quality of life and better glycemic control of patients with diabetes suffering from severe hypoglycemia that are not eligible for vascularized pancreas transplantation. Islet isolation is a technically challenging procedure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pancreatic Islet Transplantation : Modifications of Islet Properties to Improve Graft Survival

    Author : Sanja Cabric; Olle Korsgren; Bo Nilsson; Peetra Magnusson; Michael Breimer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medicine; Diabetes; islet transplantation; islets of Langerhans; coagulation activation; IBMIR; hirudin; heparin; growth factor; angiogenesis; Medicin;

    Abstract : During the past decade clinical islet transplantation has become a viable strategy for curing type 1 diabetes. The limited supply of organs, together with the requirement for islets from multiple donors to achieve insulin independence, has greatly limited the application of this approach. READ MORE

  5. 5. Positron Emission Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Techniques in Diabetes

    Author : Lina Carlbom; Håkan Ahlström; Olle Korsgren; Olof Eriksson; Lars Johansson; Tove Grönroos; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : In order to further advance the field of diabetes research there is a great need for establishing validated non-invasive quantitative techniques to study the pancreas and other tissues of importance for blood glucose regulation. The general aim of this thesis was to explore magnetic resonance techniques and positron emission tomography as such tools. READ MORE
