(1) The freezing protocol we have devised for rat islets results in normal clinical indices and almost normal glucose tolerance in diabetic recipients of the same inbred strain. (2) Cryopreservation of canine islet-containing pancreatic tissue required a higher temperature than rat islets during exposure to the protective agent. (3) Because of the similar compactness of the pancreas in man and dog, we consider this canine model useful for formulating optimal cryopreservation techniques for the human pancreas. (4) Cryopreservation may partially purify islet-containing tissue of its exocrine content.
