Researchers from 12 medical centers have published the first annual
report of the Collaborative Islet Transplant Registry, results from islet
cell transplants at centers in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The
project was funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and
Kidney Diseases, in Bethesda, Md. The report provides information on islet
cell transplants in 86 patients with type 1 diabetes and analyzes factors
that can affect the outcome of this experimental procedure (http://www.citregistry.org).
