Allogeneic rejection or recurrence of autoimmunity as the cause of immune destruction of pancreatic grafts

Gunnarsson, R. ; Bottazzo, G. F. ; Freedman, Z. R. ; Lernmark, A. LU ; Zühlke, H. and Groth, C. G. (1980) In Transplantation Proceedings 12(4 Suppl. 2). p.112-113
Abstract

There is evidence that the destruction of the pancreatic B cell in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus is due to autoimmune reactions. Transplantation of islet cell tissue might then provoke 'reimmunization', and this could presumably lead to destruction of the transplanted B cells. The authors have looked for signs of recurrence of autoimmunity following pancreatic transplantation.
