It is a multicentre, sequential, phase II clinical trial, aiming at evaluating the allogeneic islet transplantation for the treatment of type 1 diabetes.

19 patients with type 1 diabetes will be included and ideally distributed evenly: patients with unstable diabetes without renal insufficiency (AI group for "islet alone" by the international customary determination) and patients with a functioning kidney transplant (IAK group for "islet after kidney"). The main endpoint will be defined by the restoration of normal glycemic control without insulin at 6 months after graft.

Condition Intervention Phase
Patients With Type 1 Diabetes Procedure: Allogeneic transplantation of intrahepatic islet Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • restoration of normal glycemic control without insulin [ Time Frame: 6 months after graft ]

    the restoration of normal glycemic control without insulin therapy will be evaluated by measuring

    - A fasting glucose (> 8 hours) less than 1.25 g/L and a 2 hours glucose after oral intake of 75g of glucose, less than 2 g/L in a patient without insulin for at least 15 consecutive days during the the first 6 months from day 0.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Restoration of normal glycemic control without insulin for a year [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • Obtaining an improvement in glycemic control [ Time Frame: within 2 years after inclusion ]
    HbA1c <6.5%, with lower insulin doses by 30%

  • Obtaining a remission of diabetes [ Time Frame: within 2 years after inclusion ]

    The remission of diabetes is defined by the normality of blood glucose or insulin without lHbA1c.

    The normality of blood glucose is defined below 1.20 g/L and postprandial fasting glycemia less than 1.60 g/L in the book self-monitoring (including 6/7 blood glucoses during the previous 3 days evaluation visit).

    Normal HbA1c is defined as less than 6.5%.

  • Improved metabolic profile determined by the OGTT and hyperglycemic clamp [ Time Frame: within 2 years after inclusion ]
  • Decreased glycemic variability [ Time Frame: within 2 years after inclusion ]
    defined on blood glucose and / or glucose holter

  • Reduction of oxidative stress assessed by the urinary excretion of 24 hours of 8-iso-PGF2 rates. [ Time Frame: within 2 years after inclusion ]
  • Decrease in the frequency, severity or poor perception of hypoglycaemia defined Hypo score [ Time Frame: within the 2 years after inclusion ]
  • quality of life [ Time Frame: within 2 years after inclusion ]
    defined by questionnaires DQOL and SF-36

  • term graft survival [ Time Frame: within 2 years of inclusion ]
    defined by the rate of C-peptide

  • beta-cell function [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    based on beta-score

  • potential of each infusion of islets [ Time Frame: within 2 years after inclusion ]
    number of IEQ/kg of recipient required to reduce the daily insulin dose of 1 unit

  • degenerative complications of diabetes [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 19
Study Start Date: July 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Allogeneic transplantation of intrahepatic islet
Allogeneic transplantation of intrahepatic islet number required for insulin independence of obtaining, with a threshold dose of 9,000 IEQ/kg body weight of the recipient and a maximum sequence number of 3 infusions. The patient will receive after transplantation immunosuppressive therapy with Thymoglobulin for induction, Prograf and Cellcept, both of which are given throughout the duration of the study
Procedure: Allogeneic transplantation of intrahepatic islet
