Extracellular matrix induction method to produce pancreatic islet tissue
Dudek, Ronald W.
A method and composition of regenerating tissue. More specifically, a method for regenerating pancreatic islet tissue having the histological and insulin-containing properties of islets typically found in neonatal or adult animals is described. The regenerated islet tissue is produced by fetal mesenchyme acting upon an epithelium such that an inductive message causes the epithelium to differentiate into islet tissue.
