The endocrine system includes the hypothalamic--pituitary--adrenal axis, the hypothalamic--pituitary--gonadal axis, the hypothalamic--pituitary--thyroid axis, the hypothalamic--pituitary--growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor-1 axis, and the hypothalamic--posterior pituitary axis, as well as other sources of hormones, such as the endocrine pancreas
and endocrine adipose tissue.
In 2002, he joined the University of Michigan faculty where he focused mainly on surgical diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid, endocrine pancreas
and adrenal glands, as well as the surgical management of multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes.
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MATERNAL AND FOETAL GLYCEMIA AND FOETAL ENDOCRINE PANCREAS
Conclusion: Sodium cyclamate affects the histomorphology of endocrine pancreas
by increasing the area of islets of langerhans in treated group.
This includes triad of tumours of parathyroid glands, endocrine pancreas
and anterior pituitary.
The study, conducted by scientists at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and ViaCyte, documented in a mouse model that a selective blockade of specific elements of the immune system, co-stimulatory blocking agents CTLA4Ig and anti-CD154, allows the implanted precursor cells to avoid immune rejection and develop into the insulin-producing and other cells of the healthy endocrine pancreas
The exocrine pancreas is found throughout the organ; within the exocrine pancreas, distinct cell masses called islets of Langerhans are dispersed and constitute the endocrine pancreas
When implanted under the skin, the PEC-01 cells are designed to mature and further differentiate into insulin-producing beta and other endocrine cells that regulate blood glucose in a manner similar or identical to the islets that normally comprise the endocrine pancreas

5 the expression of Pdx1 is mostly restricted to the mature [beta]-cells in the endocrine pancreas
(Guz et al.
So, beta cells of endocrine pancreas
either stop producing insulin or can no longer produce it in enough quantity for body's needs.
GLP-1 is an important postprandial hormone secreted from the L-cells in the intestine with a stimulating effect on insulin secretion and an inhibitory role on glucagon secretion from the endocrine pancreas
in a glucose-dependent manner.
