nPOD Publications Reach 100


Dr. Martha Campbell-Thompson recently published the 100th nPOD publication: Organ donor specimens: What can they tell us about type 1 diabetes? Pediatric Diabetes 2015:16:320-330.

“This mini-review will provide some key histopathological findings emanating from the nPOD collection, including the heterogeneity of beta cell loss and islet inflammation (or insulitis, shown in the image to the right), beta cell mass, insulin-producing beta cells in chronic T1D, and pancreas weight reductions at disease onset. Analysis of variations in histopathology observed from these organ donors could provide for mechanistic differences related to etiological agents and serve an important function in terms of identifying the heterogeneity of T1D.”
