Exploring Unmet Needs in Islet Cell Transplantation and Stem Cell-Derived Islet Research

DiaPharma’s Dr. Abi Kasberg headed to Florence for the 2024 Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) conference to learn more about the utility of intact proinsulin as a biomarker in diabetes and how new drugs in the space are shaping the field. She writes about her experience, describing a “treat for the mind (and palate). Being new to the diabetes space, it was thrilling to learn about the latest insights and advancements that are being made in diabetes research to improve patient outcomes.”

Coming from an interest in beta cell biomarkers, it became clear to Dr. Kasberg that beta cell health and function are important in various facets of diabetes research. Because each of these fields are brimming with new developments, she honed in on islet cell transplantation and stem cell-derived islets to discuss in depth.

She notes that “the vulnerable and delicate nature of donor islets and stem cell-derived islet cells underscores the importance of careful and precise monitoring of islet health. Early detection of beta cell dysfunction during stem cell-derived islet development and following engraftment will enable earlier interventions and optimized patient outcomes.”
