BACKGROUND: Celsior is an extracellular-type, low-viscosity, preservation solution already used for heart, lung, liver, and kidney transplantation. We report the results of a single-center, prospective, randomized pilot study specifically designed to compare the safety profile of Celsior solution with University of Wisconsin (UW) solution in clinical pancreas transplantation. METHODS: A total of 105 consecutive procurements were randomized to graft preservation with UW (n=53) solution or Celsior (n=52) solution. The groups were comparable with regard to all donor and recipient characteristics. RESULTS: Five grafts were discarded and 100 grafts (50 UW vs. 50 Celsior) were transplanted. Mean cold and warm ischemia times were 11.0 +/- 2.1 hr and 37.2 +/- 6.0 min for UW compared with 10.8 +/- 1.8 hr and 38.1 +/- 5.9 min for Celsior (P =not significant). Delayed endocrine pancreas function was recorded in one graft preserved with UW solution. Eleven recipients (UW 12% vs. Celsior 10%, P =not significant) required a relaparotomy. The mean serum levels of glucose, amylase, and lipase remained comparable between the study arms at equivalent intervals after transplantation. One recipient died with functioning grafts in each study arm; two further grafts were lost to arterial thrombosis (Celsior) and chronic rejection (UW), respectively. Actuarial 1-year patient and graft survival rates overlapped in the two study arms (98% and 96%, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: Within the range of cold ischemia time reported in this study, UW and Celsior solutions have similar safety profiles for pancreas preservation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Celsior is an extracellular-type, low-viscosity, preservation solution already used for heart, lung, liver, and kidney transplantation. We report the results of a single-center, prospective, randomized pilot study specifically designed to compare the safety profile of Celsior solution with University of Wisconsin (UW) solution in clinical pancreas transplantation. METHODS: A total of 105 consecutive procurements were randomized to graft preservation with UW (n=53) solution or Celsior (n=52) solution. The groups were comparable with regard to all donor and recipient characteristics. RESULTS: Five grafts were discarded and 100 grafts (50 UW vs. 50 Celsior) were transplanted. Mean cold and warm ischemia times were 11.0 +/- 2.1 hr and 37.2 +/- 6.0 min for UW compared with 10.8 +/- 1.8 hr and 38.1 +/- 5.9 min for Celsior (P =not significant). Delayed endocrine pancreas function was recorded in one graft preserved with UW solution. Eleven recipients (UW 12% vs. Celsior 10%, P =not significant) required a relaparotomy. The mean serum levels of glucose, amylase, and lipase remained comparable between the study arms at equivalent intervals after transplantation. One recipient died with functioning grafts in each study arm; two further grafts were lost to arterial thrombosis (Celsior) and chronic rejection (UW), respectively. Actuarial 1-year patient and graft survival rates overlapped in the two study arms (98% and 96%, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: Within the range of cold ischemia time reported in this study, UW and Celsior solutions have similar safety profiles for pancreas preservation.
