|Experimental: islet transplantation||
Procedure: islet transplantation
Islet transplantation consisted of up to three sequential fresh islet infusions within three months. Access to the portal vein was gained under general anesthesia by percutaneous catheterisation of a peripheral portal branch under ultrasound guidance or by surgical catheterisation of a small mesenteric vein.
The beneficial effects of glycemic control on both survival and function of transplanted kidneys in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus have been recognized.
The purpose of this study is to reverse hyperglycemia and insulin dependency, by islet cell transplantation, in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus who have a stable kidney allograft.
The study primary efficacy endpoint is graft survival defined as insulin independence and HbA1c < 6.5% at 1 year post first transplant. Secondary outcomes are graft function and metabolic control
The immunosuppression protocol for the kidney graft was converted to sirolimus+tacrolimus regimen 6 months before islet transplantation to exclude negative effects on kidney graft function.
