Formation of insulin-positive cells in implants of human pancreatic duct cell preparations from young donors


Pancreatic ducts are considered as potential sites for neogenesis of beta cells. In vitro studies have reported formation of islets from postnatal human and rodent duct tissue. We examined whether postnatal human duct-cell preparations can generate new beta cells after transplantation. Pancreatic duct cells were prepared from the non-endocrine fraction of… (More)
