The Collaborative Islet Transplant Registry (CITR} is also a good source to find out about islet cell transplant clinical trials that are currently being conducted around the world. It shows maps of where all of the centers are. You can click on a center and find out about that center and which trials they are participating in. It also has reports of previous years’ results.
