Pancreatic Islets in Forefront of Diabetes Research
Date:4/14/2009

by 14 laboratories in the Islet Cell Resource (ICR) consortium, with 67 percent of the islets used for basic science research and 31 percent for clinical purposes, according in background information in a news release from the journal.

"The importance of human pancreatic islets, clinically or for basic science research, is substantiated by the number and quality of studies being performed that rely on these preparations," the authors wrote. "Data available through the ICR as of August 2008 indicate that a total of 151 national and international scientists received human islets for use in both intramural research performed by the consortium as well as 182 clinical and basic science projects submitted to the consortium for support."

"Human pancreatic islets will be critical for restoration of beta-cell function in patients with diabetes," they concluded. "Even given adequate funding levels, the ongoing challenges to supplying human islets must be addressed for the successful exploration of therapeutic options for this chronic and debilitating disease."
