abstract

  • These data demonstrate that human islets can be cultured in M-SFM for extended periods and still retain in vitro and in vivo function and the ability to cure experimental diabetes. The ability to maintain islets in culture for prolonged periods is an important step toward the development of islet tissue repositories and distribution centers.
