Experimental pancreas transplantation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Animal models are an important method of scientific research. Progress in clinical transplantation was made much in part due to experimental animal models which helped to evolve the surgical techniques and methods of engraftment and eventually created a path toward human transplantation. In the field of pancreas transplantation, animal models have also provided a better understanding of transplant immunology, graft rejection, immunosuppressive therapy, and methods of organ preservation.
