The Collaborative Islet Transplantation Registry Program

by:

The National Institutes of Health, more commonly referred to as NIH, is a federal government agency operating under the United States Department of Health and Human Services that's greatly accountable for financially supporting all of the nation's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The initiatives of the NIH are all specially designed to assist in the attainment of its primary agency mission which is "to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."

In accordance with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has formed a partnership with the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) in order to establish the The Collaborative Islet Transplantation Registry Program wherein both agencies seek to invite applications that intend to continue initiatives started through the Collaborative Islet Transplantation Registry (CITR).

The registry is comprised of substantial data regarding human islet transplantation experience from the year 1999 to present. The data also includes information concerning pancreas donors, islet preparations, transplantation procedures, associated therapies, and recipient outcomes.

The program in focus seeks to improve the availability and dissemination of these data to islet transplant centers, and the rest of the medical community.   (continued...)
