Islet Transplant Results

JAMA. 2004;292(16):1946. doi:10.1001/jama.292.16.1946-a

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).
