Current Issue Highlights
Numerous strategies have emerged to provide beta cell replacement to patients with diabetes, including pancreas transplantation, islet cell transplantation, and most recently, the artificial pancreas. Each has advantages and disadvantages, but to date, none has distinguished itself as a satisfactory, scalable therapy. In this issue of AJT, we present numerous articles highlighting the current state of these three modalities. Brennan et al present 12-year follow-up on recipients of islet transplants using the Edmonton protocol, and Moassesfar et al present a study comparing pancreas to islet transplantation. Both are commented upon in an editorial by Markmann. Forlenza et al present their promising results of a closed-loop artificial pancreas trial. Singh et al and King et al provide important analyses of complications related to pancreas transplantation, while Gruessner and Gruessner provide data from the International Pancreas Transplant Registry on pancreas after islet transplant results.

US to Offer Uterus Transplants
- The Cleveland Clinic has proposed offering the first uterine transplant in the United States, and three additional U.S. centers have expressed interest in developing their own programs.
- The initial effort in Cleveland would include 10 women and use deceased donor organs; any delivery would be performed via Caesarian section.
- Future plans for studies with deceased donors and with organs procured by robotic-assisted laparoscopy are currently in development internationally
