Influence of steroid administration on the endocrine function of neoprene-injected segmental pancreas allotransplants

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The first human pancreatic allotransplantation was performed in 1966 by Lillehei et al. The amelioration of the surgical technique, particularly the handling of the exocrine secretions, led in recent years to an improvement of graft survival and to a greater diffusion of this technique. This surgical procedure, when successful, leads to the disappearance of the classical signs of diabetes. To better evaluate the real efficacy of this technique in providing an endogenous source of insulin, and to study the influence of different immunosuppressive treatments on the endocrine function, we have evaluated the response to some insulinogenic stimuli and the 24-hour hormone metabolic profile of patients receiving a pancreas transplant. r161w8 =ratio
