The aim of this study was to examine insulin and glucagon secretory patterns in successfully transplanted spontaneously diabetic BB/Wor dp rats. Diabetic, BB/Wor dp rats received abdominal, intratesticular islet grafts of MHC-compatible BB/Wor dr donor rats without immunosuppression. After a period of 74 +/- 15 days of normoglycemia, they were given the… CONTINUE READING
