- Multipotent progenitor cells isolated from adult human pancreatic tissueI Todorov
Southern California Islet Cell Resource Center, Department of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, City of Hope National Medical Center, 1500 East Duarte Road, Duarte, CA 91010, USA
Transplant Proc 37:3420-1. 2005..These adult progenitor cells can be successfully differentiated into insulin-producing cells, and thus they have the potential for treatment of type-1 diabetes mellitus...
- Generation of human islets through expansion and differentiation of non-islet pancreatic cells discarded (pancreatic discard) after islet isolationIvan Todorov
