Abstract Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in our society. While insulin treatment for diabetes type I could delay and reduce the incidence of diabetic complications, it is associated with an increased risk of severe hypoglycemia. To restore physiologic insulin metabolism, transplantation of insulin producing cells (pancreatic Beta cells) represent the sole available therapy. It could be done either through pancreas or islet of Langerhans transplantation. In this paper, we review actual knowledge regarding these two types of transplantations.
