Pig pancreas oxygenation at 20 degrees C increases islet ATP generation but deteriorates islet function.

Successful pancreas preservation during storage in oxygenated perfluorodecalin (PFD) is mainly related to oxidative ATP generation during storage. Increasing the storage temperature would accelerate this process essential for resuscitation of ischemically damaged pancreatic tissue. The present study aimed at comparing islet isolation outcome from adult pig… CONTINUE READING
