Presentation Transcript


Why is the current therapy not perfect

Why is the current therapy not perfect?

  • Even slightly elevated blood glucose is harmful.

  • The limiting factor of insulin treatment is hypoglycaemia.

  • The compensation of disease is despite intensified treatment, new insulins (rapid and slow analogues) and pump treatment is often not sufficient

    • Peripheral/portal insulin

    • Lack of C-peptide (?!)

    • Lack of paracrine regulation

    • The human factor (doctor, patient)

Possibilities

Possibilities

  • Pancreas transplantation

  • Islet cell transplantation

  • B cells from stem cells

  • Genetically modified cells producing insulin

  • Regeneration of B cells

  • Arteficial Langerhans islets

Real possibilities

Real possibilities

  • Pancreas transplantation (yes)

  • Islet cell transplantation (yes, but)

  • B cells from stem cells (research)

  • Genetically modified cells producing insulin (yes, but not for direct treatment)

  • Regeneration of B cells (???)

  • Closed loop system – pump and senzor (yes, but)

  • Arteficial islets (research)

History of transplantations

History of transplantations

  • Soboljev (1902) Allen, 1913 (!!)– future possibility

  • Carrell Alexis – Nobel price, 1912

    • Basic technology of cell culture, short-term success in experiments

  • Kelly et al., 1966

    • 28 y. woman, 9 y T1DM, renal insufficiency. Pancreas and kidney transplantation. Normoglycaemia 6 days, acute pancreatitis, renal insufficiency, exitus after 3months

    • Second transplantation – the pancreas worked 2 months

    • In two years 10 attempts, one-year function: one

  • and so on

  • Breakthrough in 1977, Sutherland, Minneapolis

    • In year 1986 one thousand, one-year graft survival from 3 to 40%

    • Similar results in Europe

Transplantation of pancreas and kidney

Transplantation of pancreas and kidney

  • The beginnings – hard and dissapointing

  • Later – surgical skills (autodigestion of pancreas, vessels, rejection)

  • Current state of the art – effective and safe immunossupression and infection prophylaxis (cytomegalovirus)

    • Rejection dropped in the last 10 years from 80% to 20%

    • 5 year graft survival is 70 – 85 %

    • Noprogression of complications

    • IKEM Prague1994 – 2005: 300

GRAFT SURVIVAL IN PRAGUE

Transplantation of islets or islet cells

Transplantation of islets or islet cells

  • First experiments 1965 – 1972

  • Basic problem – isolation of islets (collagenase, autodigestion of pancreas tissue).

  • Korec, Košice (1969 and later) – successful experiments on rats in a cellar without any help from the university

  • Under renal capsule, into v. renalis or v. portae

  • Unsufficient clinical results

    • Isolation and purification of islets

    • Islets from several donors

    • The metabolic compensation is worse than after organ transplantation

  • Clinical experiments were revived in 2000. Edmonton protocoll - Shapiro – hypoglycaemia unawareness patients

    • Good results of autotransplantations

    • Minimally invasive surgery (1 day)

    • Isolated islets can be stored

Stem cells

Stem cells

  • Embryonal cells – ethical problem

  • Adult – rapid progress in the last years. Stem cells for islets can be found among ductal epithel cells

  • Therapeuticalcloning – technological problems and legislative hurdles

  • Study of islet ontogenesis (very complicated)

  • Exact role of transcription factors

    • INGAP is a purified protein, in experiment lowers BG, activates other factors of islet development

    • Pdx1 k.o. mouse is born without pancreas. But Pdx1 is exprimoved also in adult age. K.o. leads to diabetes – more A than B cells, insufficient expression of GLUT2. The cause of MODY 4

Regeneration of pancreas

Regeneration of pancreas

  • Brunner

  • Korec, Šofranková (but also we)

  • Don’t believe the professors! (the cells of endocrine glands do not divide)

  • They divide - apoptosis and regeneration of B cells is intensive

  • Disturbed balance – T1 and T2DM

Yeasts and bacteria produce insulin

Yeasts and bacteria produce insulin

  • In tanks of Eli Lilly (yeast) and NOVO-NORDISK (E. coli), but not in our body

  • (The problem of regulation)

  • Majority of diabeticsis on human insulins

  • Genetic engineering (exchange of aminacids) rapid and very slow insulin analogues

Closed loop systems bioarteficial pancreas

Closed loop systemsBioarteficial pancreas

  • Strips in glucometers produce color or electrical signal

  • Continuous glucose measurement (3 -5 days)

  • Insulin pumps are at hand

  • Connect them together

  • The first biostator was constructed in 1972

  • Does not work for long term and safely
