Survival of mouse islets cotransplanted with CP-ASCs in a syngeneic islet transplantation model. Micrographs of islets at 1 day (a) and 2 days (b) after coculture with CP-ASCs. Scale bar = 50 μm. c Percentage of C57BL/6 recipients achieving normoglycemia after receiving islets alone (CTR) or islets with CP-ASCs (p = 0.004 vs CTR, log-rank test). d Blood glucose levels of CTR and CP-ASCs mice during the IVGTT. e Area under the curve (AUC) of the IVGTT in CTR and ASC mice. f Serum c-peptide levels at 7 and 14 days post transplantation. *p < 0.05, ANOVA test. ASC mice receiving islets together with adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells from chronic pancreatitis patients, CTR mice receiving islets alone
