The transference of a pancreas from one human or animal to another.
A nodular organ in the ABDOMEN that contains a mixture of ENDOCRINE GLANDS and EXOCRINE GLANDS. The small endocrine portion consists of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS secreting a number of hormones into the blood stream. The large exocrine portion (EXOCRINE PANCREAS) is a compound acinar gland that secretes several digestive enzymes into the pancreatic ductal system that empties into the DUODENUM.

A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
The middle segment of proinsulin that is between the N-terminal B-chain and the C-terminal A-chain. It is a pancreatic peptide of about 31 residues, depending on the species. Upon proteolytic cleavage of proinsulin, equimolar INSULIN and C-peptide are released. C-peptide immunoassay has been used to assess pancreatic beta cell function in diabetic patients with circulating insulin antibodies or exogenous insulin. Half-life of C-peptide is 30 min, almost 8 times that of insulin.

An antibiotic substance derived from Penicillium stoloniferum, and related species. It blocks de novo biosynthesis of purine nucleotides by inhibition of the enzyme inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase. Mycophenolic acid is important because of its selective effects on the immune system. It prevents the proliferation of T-cells, lymphocytes, and the formation of antibodies from B-cells. It also may inhibit recruitment of leukocytes to inflammatory sites. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p1301)

The major component (about 80%) of the PANCREAS composed of acinar functional units of tubular and spherical cells. The acinar cells synthesize and secrete several digestive enzymes such as TRYPSINOGEN; LIPASE; AMYLASE; and RIBONUCLEASE. Secretion from the exocrine pancreas drains into the pancreatic ductal system and empties into the DUODENUM.
Minor hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes designated A1a, A1b, and A1c. Hemoglobin A1c is most important since its sugar moiety is glucose covalently bound to the terminal amino acid of the beta chain. Since normal glycohemoglobin concentrations exclude marked blood glucose fluctuations over the preceding three to four weeks, the concentration of glycosylated hemoglobin A is a more reliable index of the blood sugar average over a long period of time.
The preparation of platelet concentrates with the return of red cells and platelet-poor plasma to the donor.
The transfer of blood platelets from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.
Irregular microscopic structures consisting of cords of endocrine cells that are scattered throughout the PANCREAS among the exocrine acini. Each islet is surrounded by connective tissue fibers and penetrated by a network of capillaries. There are four major cell types. The most abundant beta cells (50-80%) secrete INSULIN. Alpha cells (5-20%) secrete GLUCAGON. PP cells (10-35%) secrete PANCREATIC POLYPEPTIDE. Delta cells (~5%) secrete SOMATOSTATIN.

Detection of Epstein-Barr virus DNA in sera from transplant recipients with lymphoproliferative disorders. (1/501)

Early diagnosis of Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)-associated posttransplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) is important because many patients respond to reduction in immunosuppression, especially if PTLD is detected at an early stage. Previous studies have found elevated EBV DNA levels in blood from patients with PTLD, but these assays required isolation of cellular blood fractions and quantitation. We evaluated the presence of cell-free EBV DNA in serum from solid-organ transplant recipients as a marker for PTLD. Five of 6 transplant recipients with histopathologically documented PTLD had EBV DNA detected in serum at the time of diagnosis (sensitivity = 83%), compared with 0 of 16 matched transplant recipients without PTLD (specificity = 100%) (P < 0.001 [Fisher's exact test]). Furthermore, EBV DNA was detected in serum 8 and 52 months prior to the diagnosis of PTLD in two of three patients for whom stored sera were analyzed. Detection of EBV DNA in serum appears to be a useful marker for the early detection of PTLD in solid-organ transplant recipients. Further studies to define the role of such assays in evaluating solid-organ transplant patients at risk for PTLD are warranted.  (+info)

Long-term results of pancreas transplantation under tacrolius immunosuppression. (2/501)

BACKGROUND: The long-term safety and efficacy of tacrolimus in pancreas transplantation has not yet been demonstrated. The observation of prolonged pancreatic graft function under tacrolimus would indicate that any potential islet toxicity is short-lived and clinically insignificant. We report herein the results of pancreas transplantation in patients receiving primary tacrolimus immunosuppression for a minimum of 2 years. METHODS: From July 4, 1994 until April 18, 1996, 60 patients received either simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant (n=55), pancreas transplant only (n=4), or pancreas after kidney transplantation (n=1). Baseline immunosuppression consisted of tacrolimus and steroids without antilymphocyte induction. Azathioprine was used as a third agent in 51 patients and mycophenolate mofetil in 9. Rejection episodes within the first 6 months occurred in 48 (80%) patients and were treated with high-dose corticosteroids. Antilymphocyte antibody was required in eight (13%) patients with steroid-resistant rejection. RESULTS: With a mean follow-up of 35.1+/-5.9 months (range: 24.3-45.7 months), 6-month and 1-, 2-, and 33-year graft survival is 88%, 82%, 80%, and 80% (pancreas) and 98%, 96%, 93%, and 91% (kidney), respectively. Six-month and 1-, 2-, and 3-year patient survival is 100%, 98%, 98%, and 96.5%. Mean fasting glucose is 91.6+/-13.8 mg/dl, and mean glycosylated hemoglobin is 5.1+/-0.7% (normal range: 4.3-6.1%). Mean tacrolimus dose is 6.5+/-2.6 mg/day and mean prednisone dose 2.0+/-2.9 mg/day at follow-up. Complete steroid withdrawal was possible in 31 (65%) of the 48 patients with functioning pancreases. CONCLUSIONS: These data show for the first time that tacrolimus is a safe and effective long-term primary agent in pancreas transplantation and provides excellent long-term islet function without evidence of toxicity while permitting steroid withdrawal in the majority of patients.  (+info)

Prevention of autoimmune recurrence and rejection by adenovirus-mediated CTLA4Ig gene transfer to the pancreatic graft in BB rat. (3/501)

Type 1 diabetes is the result of a selective destruction of pancreatic islets by autoreactive T-cells. Therefore, in the context of islet or pancreas transplantation, newly transplanted beta-cells are threatened by both recurrent autoimmune and alloimmune responses in recipients with type 1 diabetes. In the present study, using spontaneously diabetic BB rats, we demonstrate that whereas isolated islets are susceptible to autoimmune recurrence and rejection, pancreaticoduodenal grafts are resistant to these biological processes. This resistance is mediated by lymphohematopoietic cells transplanted with the graft, since inactivation of these passenger cells by irradiation uniformly rendered the pancreaticoduodenal grafts susceptible to recurrent autoimmunity. We further studied the impact of local immunomodulation on autoimmune recurrence and rejection by ex vivo adenovirus-mediated CTLA4Ig gene transfer to pancreaticoduodenal grafts. Syngeneic DR-BB pancreaticoduodenal grafts transduced with AdmCTLA4Ig were rescued from recurrent autoimmunity. In fully histoincompatible LEW-->BB transplants, in which rejection and recurrence should be able to act synergistically, AdmCTLA4Ig transduced LEW-pancreaticoduodenal allografts enjoyed markedly prolonged survival in diabetic BB recipients. In situ reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction revealed that transferred CTLA4Ig gene was strongly expressed in both endocrine and exocrine tissues on day 3. These results indicate the potential utility of local CD28-B7 costimulatory blockade for prevention of alloimmune and autoimmune destruction of pancreatic grafts in type 1 diabetic hosts.  (+info)

Treatment of upper abdominal malignancies with organ cluster procedures. (4/501)

Upper abdominal exenteration for upper abdominal malignancies was carried out in 15 patients with removal of the liver, spleen, pancreas, duodendum, all or part of the stomach, proximal jejunum and ascending and transverse colon. Organ replacement was with the liver, pancreas and duodenum plus, in some cases, a short segment of jejunum. Eleven of the 15 patients survived for more than 4 months; 2 died, after 61/2 and 10 months, of recurrent tumor. Of the 9 patients who are surviving after 61/2 to 14 months, recurrent tumor is suspected in only 1 and proven in none. Four patients with sarcomas and carcinoid tumors (2 each) have had no recurrences. The other 5 survivors had duct cell cancers (3 examples), a cholangiocarcinoma (1 example), and a hepatoma (1 example). The experience so far supports further cautious trials with this drastic cancer operation.  (+info)

Evolution in pancreas transplantation techniques: simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation using portal-enteric drainage without antilymphocyte induction. (5/501)

OBJECTIVE: To report initial experience with the combination of a novel technique of portal-enteric pancreas transplantation with newer immunosuppressive strategies that eliminate antilymphocyte induction therapy. BACKGROUND: A new surgical technique of pancreas transplantation has been developed with portal venous delivery of insulin and enteric drainage of the exocrine secretions (portal-enteric). The introduction of potent immunosuppressive agents may allow simultaneous kidney and pancreas transplants (SKPT) to be performed without antilymphocyte induction. METHODS: From September 1996 to November 1998, the authors performed 28 primary SKPTs with portal-enteric drainage and no antilymphocyte induction. All patients received triple immunosuppression with tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, and steroids. The study group had a mean age of 38 years and a mean preoperative duration of diabetes of 25 years. Four patients (14%) had prior kidney transplants. RESULTS: All patients had immediate renal allograft function. Actual patient, kidney, and pancreas graft survival rates were 86%, 82%, and 82%, respectively, after a mean follow-up of 12 months. Four patients died, three as a result of cardiac events unrelated to SKPT. Five kidney and five pancreas grafts were lost, including five deaths with function and three cases of chronic rejection. The mean length of stay and total charges for the initial hospital stay were 12.5 days and $99,517. The mean number of readmissions was 2.9, and 10 patients (36%) had no readmissions. Six patients (21 %) developed acute rejection, with five (18%) receiving antilymphocyte therapy. Seven patients (25%) underwent relaparotomy, including two (7%) for intraabdominal infection. Nine patients (32%) had major infections, including three (11%) with cytomegaloviral infection. Of the 24 surviving patients, 22 (92%) are both dialysis- and insulin-free. CONCLUSION: These preliminary results suggest that SKPT with portal-enteric drainage without antilymphocyte induction can be performed with excellent outcomes.  (+info)

Lipids increase after solitary pancreas transplantation. (6/501)

OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to determine 1) changes in lipids after solitary pancreas transplantation (SPTX) in patients with type 1 diabetes and 2) factors that influence those changes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Lipids were evaluated prospectively in 24 patients who underwent SPTX. Three were excluded because of early graft failure. The remaining patients (n = 21; 13 men, 8 women) were studied for changes in lipids over time (pre-SPTX, 0-2, 3-6, 7-12, and > 12 months). Glycohemoglobin, serum creatinine, BMI, and medications were also analyzed for their effects on lipid changes. RESULTS: Cholesterol, HDL, and LDL decreased in the immediate postoperative period (0-2 months), whereas triglycerides (TGs) increased (P < 0.05). At 3-6 months, cholesterol, HDL, and TG were higher than before the SPTX, whereas LDL returned to pre-SPTX levels. After 12 months, HDL and TG remained higher than their pre-SPTX levels (P < 0.05). During the study, systolic and diastolic blood pressure increased, renal function decreased, glyco-hemoglobin improved, and weight was unchanged. Changes in cholesterol/HDL ratio, HDL, and TG correlated with changes in prednisone dose (P < 0.05), and changes in TG correlated with changes in creatinine (P < 0.05). The same pattern of lipids occurred in patients prescribed or not prescribed hypolipidemic agents. CONCLUSIONS: Lipids do not improve within the 1st year after SPTX, despite improved glycemic control and blood pressure control, and renal function is worse. These results are in contrast to those reported for combined kidney-pancreas transplantation, where lipids, blood pressure, and renal function improved immediately after transplant. Further studies are needed to determine whether lipids continue to change with time after SPTX. The impact of these changes after SPTX on overall cardiovascular risk is unknown.  (+info)

Activation and adoptive transfer of Epstein-Barr virus-specific cytotoxic T cells in solid organ transplant patients with posttransplant lymphoproliferative disease. (7/501)

The treatment of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) in EBV seronegative solid organ transplant recipients who acquire their EBV infection after engraftment poses a considerable challenge because of underlying immunosuppression that inhibits the virus-specific cytotoxic T cell (CTL) response in vivo. We have developed a protocol for activating autologous EBV-specific CTL lines from these patients and show their potential use for immunotherapy against PTLD in solid organ transplant patients. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells from a panel of solid organ transplant recipients with and without active PTLD were used to assess EBV-specific memory CTL responses. The activation protocol involved cocultivation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells with an autologous lymphoblastoid cell line under conditions that favored expansion of virus-specific CTL and hindered the proliferation of allospecific T cells. These CTL consistently showed (i) strong EBV-specificity, including reactivity through defined epitopes in spite of concurrent immunosuppressive therapy, and (ii) no alloreactivity toward donor alloantigens. More importantly, adoptive transfer of these autologous CTLs into a single patient with active PTLD was coincident with a very significant regression of the PTLD. These results demonstrate that a potent EBV-specific memory response can be expanded from solid organ recipients who have acquired their primary EBV infection under high levels of immunosuppressive therapy and that these T cells may have therapeutic potential against PTLD.  (+info)

Normoglycemia and preserved insulin secretory reserve in diabetic patients 10-18 years after pancreas transplantation. (8/501)

Pancreas transplantation is a controversial form of therapy for type I diabetes. A major obstacle to acceptance of this procedure for many physicians is the lack of demonstrable long-term success. We performed these studies to assess the hypothesis that successful pancreas transplantation is efficacious in normalizing endogenous insulin secretion and glycemia in the long term (1-2 decades). Sixteen patients with a history of diabetic complications who had undergone a transplant 10-18 years earlier involving either a whole or a segment of pancreas were recruited for measurements of fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, intravenous glucose tolerance, and insulin secretory reserve. All patients were taking immunosuppressive drugs, but none was using insulin or other hypoglycemic agents. All recipients had normal levels of fasting blood glucose, intravenous glucose tolerance, and HbA1c, and 15 of 16 stated that their quality of life had improved after transplantation. They had intact acute insulin responses to intravenous pulses of glucose and to arginine and insulin secretory reserve. Glucose potentiation of arginine-induced insulin secretion, the measure of insulin secretory reserve, correlated significantly (r = 0.095, P < 0.001) with the acute insulin response to intravenous glucose, rendering the latter a much simpler and valid measure of functional beta-cell mass. We conclude that successful pancreas transplants are efficacious for periods as long as 1-2 decades in returning euglycemia to type 1 diabetic patients by restoring endogenous insulin secretion and insulin secretory reserve. Thus, concern about long-term deterioration, as distinct from rejection, should not be a major obstacle when deciding whether to recommend pancreas transplantation.  (+info)

Infections have increased in simultaneous pancreas/kidney transplant recipients (SPKTRs) with CMV-infection being the most important viral infection with adverse impact on patient and allograft outcomes. A comparison of CMV-infection between SPKTRs and kidney transplant recipients (KTRs), and the association of CMV-infection with other infectious complications in SPKTRs, however, remains scarcely described.. Here, we studied all primary SPKTRs and primary deceased-donor KTRs (,65 years) at our transplant center between 2008 and 2015 for the development of active CMV-infection. 21 of 62 SPKTRs (33.9%) and 90 of 335 KTRs (26.9%) were diagnosed with CMV viremia. A control group of 41 SPKTRs without CMV viremia was used for comparison.. SPKTRs showed an increased incidence of active CMV-infection compared to KTRs. SPKTRs were more likely to develop CMV-disease, CMV pneumonia, recurrent CMV-infection, higher initial and peak CMV-loads, and more need for intravenous antiviral therapy compared to KTRs ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Rejection with duodenal rupture after solitary pancreas transplantation. T2 - An unusual cause of severe hematuria. AU - Esterl, R. M.. AU - Stratta, R. J.. AU - Taylor, R. J.. AU - Radio, Stanley J. PY - 1995/1/1. Y1 - 1995/1/1. N2 - A common urologic complication after pancreas transplantation with bladder drainage is hematuria. However, hematuria is usually mild and self-limiting and rarely requires open surgical intervention. We report an unusual case of refractory hematuria that began 17 days after solitary pancreas transplantation due to severe rejection. The patient developed severe duodenal segment swelling with mucosal rupture that eventually required operative therapy. This case is illustrative of the diagnosis and management of gross hematuria after pancreas transplantation and demonstrates the limitations of cystoscopic techniques. This unusual complication must be considered in the differential diagnosis of refractory hematuria with pancreas allograft dysfunction and ...

During the modern era of immunosuppression, the whole pancreas transplantation technique with enteric diversion became the gold standard for simultaneous Pancreas and kidney transplantation (SPK), with portal drainage of the venous effluent of the pancrea, even for pancreal transplantation after kidney (PAK) or pancreatic transplantation alone (PTA). Abstract The first attempt to cure type 1 diabetes by pancreas transplantation was done at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis, on December 17, 1966, followed by a series of whole pancreas transplantation. Due to the lack of potent immunosuppressive drugs, rejections and infections, it was concluded that pancreas was less antigenic than the kidney which was less antigenic than the duodenum. It opened the door to a period, between the mid 70s to mid 80s where only segmental pancreatic grafts were used in the recipient. Numerous techniques for diverting or dealing with the pancreas juice secretion were described, none of them being satisfactory. In
Α-lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent antioxidant. ALA is proposed to mitigate the development of diabetic polyneuropathy by addressing reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. ALA administration is approved for treatment of diabetic sensorimotor polyneuropathy in some countries. Patients that received kidney-pancreas transplantation in order to ameliorate polyneuropathy, may be treated with ALA. Therefore, the aim of the present work was to evaluate the effect of ALA in patients undergoing kidney-pancreatic transplant evaluating functional recovery of graft and biochemical markers of ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI).. The study included 18 kidney-pancreas transplant patients. ALA (600 mg, i.v.) was administered to the deceased donor at the time of ablation and to the recipients during the surgical procedure. Blood samples were obtained at the beginning, the end, 12 h after surgery and every one or two day after transplant for at least 10 days. Cytokines were measured by using a Cytometric Bead Array ...

Cytomegalovirus in solid organ transplant recipients can result in significant morbidity and mortality due to concurrent immunosuppression. Traditionally intravenous followed by oral ganciclovir has been used to prevent and treat cytomegalovirus infection and disease in transplant recipients. Recently a new oral form of ganciclovir, valganciclovir has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of CMV retinitis in patients with AIDS. Valganciclovir is more bioavailable and requires fewer daily doses and lower pill burden than oral ganciclovir. In addition valganciclovir can attain ganciclovir plasma levels similar to intravenous ganciclovir. This protocol will test the ability of valganciclovir to provide similar drug exposure (area under the curve, AUC) as oral and intravenous ganciclovir at equivalent doses in the setting of kidney and kidney-pancreas transplantation. Patients will receive four different dosing/dosage form schemes. Intravenous ganciclovir at 2.5mg/kg ...

N2 - Despite early obstacles impacting the success of pancreatic transplantation, the introduction of new procedures and new immunosuppressive therapies during the past 2 decades has improved outcomes for pancreatic transplant recipients. For example, the use of bladder drainage and better human leukocyte antigen matching has helped overcome some of the early obstacles of pancreatic transplantation. In addition, the introduction of tacrolimus in 1994 and mycophenolate mofetil in 1996 has helped lower rates of acute rejection and increase graft survival, with less nephrotoxicity than treatment with cyclosporine. Regimens allowing the tapering of corticosteroids have also helped reduce the rates of acute pancreas rejection. To further improve therapeutic options for patients with type 1 diabetes or end-stage renal disease, pancreatic islet ...
Clopidogrel is a potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation and has been used as an alternative, or as an adjunct to aspirin in reducing the risk of thrombosis. A 34-year-old uremic type 1 male diabetic patient who underwent simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation was given clopidogrel as he was allergic to aspirin. He developed polyarthralgia one week later, followed in a few days by symmetrical migratory polyarthritis, which resolved completely on withdrawing the drug. The implications to clinical management in a transplant setting are discussed.

N2 - Background: Pancreas and kidney allograft function is routinely monitored with serum studies (amylase, lipase, and creatinine). Increased levels commonly prompt tissue biopsy, to diagnose cause of graft dysfunction. Historically, pancreas allografts were infrequently biopsied, although serum enzymes and renal rejection may be poor surrogates for pancreas status. Methods: Pancreas allograft biopsies at our center were reviewed and reclassified according to University of Maryland (UMD) and Banff criteria; C4d immunostaining was performed. Findings were correlated with clinical data and renal allograft biopsies. Results: Fifty-six pancreas allograft biopsies from 27 patients were evaluated. UMD and Banff ...

AU - Siegelman, Evan S.. AU - Naji, Ali. AU - Markmann, James F.. PY - 2005/5. Y1 - 2005/5. N2 - Vascular complications are a common cause of postoperative dysfunction in a pancreatic transplant. Coronal three-dimensional (3D) contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography performed with high spatial and temporal resolution is a safe and effective method of assessing these vascular complications. A study was performed of selected patients who had undergone MR imaging and MR angiography during the past 6 years for evaluation of graft dysfunction following pancreatic transplantation. Thrombosis within peripheral stump vessels involving either the arterial or venous segments was a commonly observed vascular complication. Isolated distal arterial stump thrombi are incidental findings that may not require ...

Graft survival after pancreas transplantation alone (PTA) is significantly poorer than graft survival after simultaneous pancreas kidney (SPK) and is particularly affected by difficulty in monitoring rejection. Exocrine bladder drainage allows assessment of pancreas graft function as urinary amylase (UA). However, standards for UA collection and interpretation are not well defined. In this study, 21 bladder-drained PTA recipients were monitored with daily values for UA and urine creatinine (Creat) concentration from post-transplant 10-mL samples and 24-h collections. Clinical events were documented and correlated to UA measurements. UA values were found to increase post-transplant until day 15, and large interpatient variability was noted (median 12 676 IU/L, range 668-60 369 IU/L). A strong correlation was found total 24-h UA production and spot UA/Creat ratio (r = 0.80, p | 0.001). UA/Creat ratio showed less variation during episodes of impaired renal function; therefore, urinary amylase baseline was
Background: Simultaneous pancreas kidney transplantation (SPK), pancreas transplantation alone (PTA) or pancreas transplantation after kidney (PAK) are the only curative treatment options for patients with type 1 (juvenile) diabetes mellitus with or without impaired renal function. Unfortunately, transplant waiting lists for this indication are increasing because the current organ acceptability criteria are restrictive; morbidity and mortality significantly increase with time on the waitlist. Currently, only pancreas organs from donors younger than 50 years of age and with a body mass index (BMI) less than 30 are allocated for transplantation in the Eurotransplant (ET) area. To address this issue we designed a study to increase the available donor pool for these patients. Methods/Design: This study is a prospective, multicenter (20 German centers), single blinded, non-randomized, two armed trial comparing outcome after SPK, PTA or PAK between organs with the currently allowed donor criteria ...

Patients accepted for the waiting list for single pancreas transplantation suffer from severe glucose instability with hyperglycemia due to diabetes type 1, but do not have significant diabetes-related complications. Pancreas transplantation restores normoglycemia in diabetes type 1 patients with unstable control of glycemia. Both hypo- and hyperglycemic events are abolished, and 70-80 % of the patients obtain satisfactory HbA1c levels (HbA1c 5.0-6.0 %) without the need of exogenous insulin. Endothelial dysfunction is considered as an early and potentially reversible stage in the atherosclerotic process. The endothelium is involved in homeostasis, leucocyte adhesion and vasomotor activity. Reduced endothelium-dependent vasodilation is associated with increments in cardiovascular risk factors, and endothelial dysfunction is a predictor for future cardiovascular disease. It has also been hypothesized that endothelial dysfunction may be involved in the impaired glycemic control by reducing the ...
Pancreas transplantation alone (PTA) is mainly used as a treatment option in poorly controlled type 1 diabetes, although this procedure is more and more often performed in patients with type 2, or other types of diabetes (e.g. after pancreatectomy). Pancreas transplantation alone is aiming at prophylaxy of acute diabetes complications (especially severe hypo- and hyperglycemia), but also at achieving insulin independency and in some cases at prophylaxy of chronic complications. The present paper aims to summarize indications and contraindications for PTA (especially in patients with type 1 diabetes, although type 2 and other types of diabetes are also mentioned), and to shortly describe a process of patients selection and qualifi cation to the procedure ...

Compared with kidney transplantation alone, simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplantation was associated with an almost twofold lower 10-year mortality among type 1 diabetics, in a retrospective study.. The study included all 2,796 patients with type 1 diabetes in the Netherlands who started renal replacement therapy or received a first kidney transplant between 1986 and 2016. As reported in Diabetes Care, of the 996 who received new kidneys, 42% received a deceased-donor kidney; 16%, a living-donor kidney; and 42%, an SPK transplant. Crude survival was highest in SPK recipients and lowest in recipients of a deceased-donor kidney. Median survival time was 7.3 years for deceased-donor kidney recipients; 10.5 years for living-donor kidney recipients; and 16.5 years for SPK recipients.. @media (min-width:500px){#social{padding:0 0 15px 67px}#link{display:none!important}#facebook{padding:0 29px 0 24px}}@media screen and ...

Insulin resistance is a characteristic feature in recipients of a pancreas transplant, but the relative contribution of the liver and peripheral tissues to this abnormality within a spanning range of insulin concentrations is unknown. To assess the impact of insulin action on glucose metabolism after pancreas transplantation, a euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic clamp with sequential insulin infusions (5, 40, and 200 mU m−2·min−1 for 120 min each), combined with isotopic determinations of the rates of hepatic glucose production and extrahepatic glucose uptake, indirect calorimetry, and measurements of glycogen synthase and hexokinase activities in vastus lateralis muscle, were performed in six pancreas-kidney transplant recipients (Px group) and compared with those performed in six nondiabetic kidney transplant recipients with similar immunosuppression (Kx group) and six nondiabetic control subjects. The overall effects of insulin on whole-body glucose metabolism, determined as the glucose ...

ABSTRACT:Charcots neuroarthropathy is a destructive complication of the joint, which is often found in patients living with diabetes. Despite the fact that its description was published almost 100 years ago, its pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment remain areas that need to be updated. Its prevalence is low in patients living with diabetes, but this increases in particular situations such as peripheral neuropathy, as well as after simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation (SPKT) in patients living with type 1 diabetes. We suggest that the development of neuroarthropathy after SPK in not only due to glucocorticoid therapy, as described, but also to the rapid passage into euglycemia. The reduced prevalence of neuroarthropathy after only kidney transplantation compared to SPK seems to validate our hypothesis.

The Division of Nephrology at UI Health treats patients with conditions and diseases of the kidney, including end-stage renal disease (ESRD), kidney transplantation, acute kidney failure, kidney stones, and immunological kidney diseases at the University of Illnois Outpatient Care Center. Our kidney transplant outcomes are among the best in Chicago. The Division of Nephrology has grown out of a long history of excellence in the field of kidney treatment and research.. In the early 1950s, UI Health nephrologists refined and developed the percutaneous kidney biopsy as a clinical tool. UI Health was the first institution in Illinois to perform a living-donor kidney/pancreas transplant and the first in the world to perform a robotic donor nephrectomy (kidney removal) for a living-donor transplant.. #pageTitle{border-bottom-width:5px !important} ...
I began eating a HFLC ketogenic diet on August 23rd 2018 where my total cholesterol was 156 months earlier.

A few months after going strict ketovore, eating 50-70% of my TDEE ub fat I had another lipid test on December 13th revealing a total of 770 where LDL was 658!

Assessing the risk-to-benefit ratio for solitary islet transplantation is a challenge and has to be individualized. The risks associated with the procedure have been documented (3,4,16), but assessing the indications of problematic hypoglycemia and glycemic lability has been subjective. Some patients cope well with recurrent hypoglycemia or erratic glucose levels that would be disabling for others. Some perspective on the severity of the problem compared with the general diabetes clinic population would be helpful for the physician and patient, and standardization of the assessment of islet transplant patients across various sites would be beneficial. There is a similar need for the assessment of subjects for solitary pancreas transplant.. The frequency of severe hypoglycemia in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial was 0.61 episodes per patient per year (6). Allen et al. (17) reported that one-third of patients with type 1 diabetes, mainly younger and with a duration of diabetes of 4-6 ...

C-Peptide is useful in the evaluation of pancreatic beta cell function (e.g., helping distinguish type 1 from type 2 diabetes mellitus, or monitoring patients who have received islet cell or pancreatic transplant) and for determining the source of insulin in patients with hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (e.g., distinguishing insulin-secreting tumors from exogenous insulin administration). It is also sometimes measured as an additional means (more resistant to hemolysis than is insulin itself) for evaluating glucose tolerance tests ...

While you can never be truly prepared, mentally and monetarily, for a life altering event like an organ transplant we werent expecting this time to come so soon.. Instead of a total pancreatectomy she will be getting a total pancreatectomy and islet auto transplant, or TP-IAT. University of Minnesota Health has a great article called FIVE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT (TP-IAT) SURGERY. The short version in laymen terms is they remove the pancreas, pull out the islet cells that product insulin and infuse them into the liver. The liver then hosts the islets. If they take, this essentially tricks the liver into producing insulin like the pancreas. Her chances of being Type 1 diabetic are only about 20%.. The process to get this procedure consists of an initial 4 day consultation. Her case would then be presented to the board for acceptance. After acceptance there would be a couple week inpatient stay after the procedure. Due to the rigorous follow up schedule Emily and Liz will be required to live ...

A lack of donors and high cost are the major limiting factors. Each successful islet transplant currently needs five donor pancreases, though some groups have had success with a single donor pancreas. There are a very small number of donors in relation to very large numbers of people with diabetes. Worldwide, it is thought there are only enough organs to transplant 1 in 200 (0.5%) people with type 1 diabetes.. Your immune system is programmed to destroy foreign cells. At present immunosuppressive drugs are needed to prevent rejection of these transplantated cells by the body. These drugs are associated with side effects which may be harmful. The long term effects of these drugs are not yet known. It is thought that taking immunosuppressive drugs increases the risk of cancer as well.. ...
