Beta-Cell Transplantation in Pre-Uremic Patients With Type 1 Diabetes
Beta-Cell Transplantation in Pre-Uremic Patients With Type 1 Diabetes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • type 1 insulin-dependent diabetic patients in relatively good general condition
  • non-smoker
  • body weight < 80 kg
  • C-peptide < 0.03 nmol/l (<0.09 µg/l) 6 min. after glucagon IV (1mg) (glycemia > 180 mg/dl)
  • EBV antibody positive
  • cooperative and reliable patient giving informed consent by signature; the patient should be informed in sufficient detail on the content and procedure of the protocol, indicating potential risks of intervention and of immunosuppressive therapy; the patient should also be informed that withdrawal of immunosuppressive therapy in patients with persistent plasma C-peptide positivity may result in subsequent loss of ß-cell graft function; the ß cell implant should be identified as a clinical trial

Exclusion Criteria:

  • history of thrombosis or pulmonary embolism
  • abnormal liver function
  • HLA antibodies
