The University of Wisconsin is conducting an islet cell transplant clinical trial for patients with Type I diabetes mellitus.


The purpose of this trial is to study the effectiveness of pioglitazone, a medicine that sensitizes the body's cells to insulin, in combination with islet transplant in selected individuals with Type I diabetes mellitus.


The links on this page provide detailed information about islet cells, the transplant process and how patients can get involved with the clinical trial.
