Abstract

The incidence of diabetes mellitus has grown exponentially in the last few years. Etiopathogenesis of diabetes implies a ?-cells damage in the islet of Langerhans, either through an autoimmune reaction present in type 1 diabetic patients or through altered function within these cells that affect their ability to secrete a properly functioning insulin hormone, in patients suffering from type 2 diabetes. Exogenous insulin supply is, at the moment, the therapy of choice of the disease but it does not allow tight control of glucose regulation, leading to long-term complications. Over the past few decades, pancreas or pancreas-kidney organ transplantation has been the most effective treatment for severe diabetic patients. Recently, an alternative promising therapeutic approach, consisting of successful pancreatic islet transplantation to reconstitute the insulin producing ? cells, has also emerged. Unfortunately the number of donor islets is too low compared to high number of patients needing a transplant, so the search for new renewable sources of high-quality ?-cells becomes highly topical. In this review, starting from the description of state of art of islet transplantation, we summarize the more recent promising approaches to the generation of new ?-cells giving a big enfacy to adult stem/progenitor cells.
