MSCs Support Islet Functionality

Understanding how mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) respond to and protect islets damaged by transplantation-related stressors will facilitate the development of MSC secretome-based cell‐free approaches that support islet graft function during transplantation therapy for type 1 diabetes by protecting or repairing β cells. For a review of this area, see a new STEM CELLS Translational Medicine article from researchers led by Ella L. Hubber (King's College London, UK) now!
