Abstract

It is unknown to what extent preservation and/or reperfusion may damage islet cells in pancreas allografts. In this study, the release of insulin after reperfusion was used as a marker of injury to the islet cell and compared with the best insulin secretory response (ISR) after glucagon stimulation over a period of 100 days after pancreas transplantation.
