Therapy of experimental type 1 Diabetes by isolated sertoli cell xenografts alone.


Type I diabetes mellitus is caused by autoimmune destruction of pancreatic β cells, and effective treatment of the disease might require rescuing β cell function in a context of reinstalled immune tolerance. Sertoli cells (SCs) are found in the testes, where their main task is to provide local immunological protection and nourishment to developing germ cells. SCs engraft, self-protect, and coprotect allogeneic and xenogeneic grafts from immune destruction...
