  1. 1. Studies of Innate and Adaptive Immunity in Islet Transplantation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Hårdstedt; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetes; islet transplantation; islets of Langerhans; xenotransplantation; nonhuman primate; blood; whole blood model; innate immunity; adaptive immunity; IBMIR; chemokines;

    Abstract : Clinical islet transplantation is today an established alternative treatment for a selected group of type 1 diabetes patients. The predominant technique for transplantation is infusion of islets in the liver via the portal vein. READ MORE
