Pancreas Islet Cell Transplant

Pre-transplant:

In 2003, the BC Pancreatic Islet Transplant Program performed the first pancreatic islet transplants in British Columbia. The goal of the program was to provide an opportunity for diabetic patients to receive a pancreatic islet transplant, and to contribute to the research and advancement of the islet transplant field.

Eligibility:

  • You must be a BC resident and have a Personal Care Card Number
  • Referrals (for either islet with no previous kidney transplant; or islet after kidney transplant) to the BC Pancreatic Islet Transplant Program may come through either the 'Best Care' Diabetes Program at Vancouver General Hospital, from a referring endocrinologist or from the Renal Transplant program
