The role of adhesion molecules in allotransplanted islet cells rejection. Prolongation of islet cells allograft survival by antiadhesion treatment.

Abstract

Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus is an autoimmune disease caused by the selective destruction of islet beta cells. Allo or xeno transplantation of islet cells may establish a novel promising method of IDDM therapy. Understanding how lymphocytes recognize beta cell antigens is essential for the elucidation of the pathogenesis of islet dysfunction… (More)
