T1DM Test

If transplanted islets are housed in crosslinked PEG / Alginate hydrogels, will participants return to normoglycemic levels?

Scientific Questions Being Studied

If transplanted islets are housed in crosslinked PEG / Alginate hydrogels, will participants return to normoglycemic levels?

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (Type 1 Diabetes Meletus )

Scientific Approaches

- Each group will be read for glycemic levels three times per day, morning, immediately after eating and two hours after eating.
- Glycemic levels will be tested using blood glucose tests.
- After 60 days the islets will be removed and analyzed for growth fouling.

Anticipated Findings

The anticipated findings are the participants with transplanted islets housed in crosslinked PEG / Alginate hydrogels will return to normoglycemic levels and stay at those levels until removal of the islets. The hydrogels will also have minimal to no growth fouling on the surface, hindering islet function. These findings will help advance the treatment to T1DM.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
