Study Summary

The transplant of the insulin-producing cell into the liver (Islet transplant) has been proven an effective and valuable treatment for type 1 diabetics patients with poor blood sugar. However, Islet transplant is currently limited by the number of pancreas organ donors and the need for lifelong medication requirements such as antirejection drugs. The investigators have learned that Regulatory T cells (Tregs), a small subset of a cluster of differentiation 4+ (CD4+) T cells, have emerged as the major contributor to self-tolerance by preventing the initiation of unwanted immune activation and by suppressing ongoing immune responses to limit bystander tissue destruction. It has been suggested that infusion of Tregs before extensive graft damage may improve long-term graft outcomes. In this trial, we propose to study Analogous cryopreserved PolyTregs (cePolyTregs). cePolyTregs is a product with the same in vivo functionality to that of the non-cryopreserved PolyTregs.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
