Effects of pancreas transplantation on diabetic neuropathy. Careful studies of motor index (panel A), sensory index (panel B), and autonomic index (panel C) show a general trend of improvement over 42 months in patients who received pancreas transplantation compared with patients in the control group. In patients with pancreas transplantation, 70% had improved results on motor nerve tests, nearly 60% on sensory tests, and 45% on autonomic tests. In patients in the control group, only 30% had improved results on motor and sensory tests, 12% had improved autonomic tests, and nearly 50% had deterioration of neurologic function.
