Pancreatic islet transplantation. Induction of graft acceptance by ultraviolet irradiation of donor tissue.

Abstract

The effect of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation on the immunogenicity of rat pancreatic islets was examined in allograft and xenograft models. Direct UV irradiation (900 J/m2) of Lewis islets, isolated and hand-picked, does not alter pancreatic islet endocrine function in isograft experiments and results in indefinite islet allograft survival in streptozocin… (More)
