From Southampton, England:
Is there any hope that pancreas transplantation could happen in the future? Do you think that people are aware enough that this could be a possibility?
As of December 1997 more than 10,000 pancreas transplants have been reported to the international pancreas transplant registry (IPTR). You can directly access the IPTR at http://www.surg.umn.edu/iptr/ for a summary of all categories, protocols and results.
[Editor's comment: The Insulin-Free World Foundation is very active in promoting pancreas transplants as a treatment for Type 1 diabetes. Their web site contains excellent information about transplantation. JSH]
