Further study details as provided by Virginia Commonwealth University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The functional capability of the islet allograft to normalize glucose metabolism in the absence of insulin therapy. [ Time Frame: Outcome measures will be assessed at protocol prescribed intervals. Long term outcomes assessment will be measured at 5 years post transplant or all evidence of islet function has ceased plus six months. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction in insulin requirements in those patients who do not achieve insulin independence with improved metabolic control. [ Time Frame: Outcome measures will be assessed at protocol prescribed intervals. ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: August 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
