We examined a possible protective effect of the nonpeptidyl low molecular weight radical scavenger IAC [bis(l-hydroxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-4-piperidinyl) decanedioate di-hydrochloride] on isolated human islet cells against isolation and culture oxidative stress. Islets isolated from pancreases of nondiabetic multiorgan donors by collagenase digestion were purified by density gradient centrifugation. After the isolation, islets were either exposed or not exposed for 7 days to 10 μmol/L IAC. We found that IAC markedly reduced oxidative stress and ameliorated islets function. These results suggest that the use of IAC could be an interesting pharmacological approach for the treatment of the islets before transplantation. Copyright © 2008 Cognizant Comm. Corp.
