Proliferation and functional assessment of pseudo-islets with the use of pancreatic endocrine cells.

Abstract

Many obstacles beset islet transplantation, particularly insufficient tissue mass. Previously, we reported production of pseudo-islets. In addition, there have been reports in which coculture with pancreatic islet and bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) demonstrated positive effects on pancreatic islet function. The purpose of this study was to… (More)
