Rimonabant therefore appears to be a unique drug targeted at fundamental abnormalities putatively underlying risk factor clustering and the metabolic syndrome. The potential benefits of Rimonabant have been shown in the RIO-Europe (obese subjects) and RIO-Lipid (obese subjects with dyslipidemia) trials (70,71). In these trials, as compared with placebo, 20 mg/day of Rimonabant was associated with a significant weight loss (about 6 kg), a reduction in waist circumference (about 5 cm), an increase in HDL cholesterol (about 9%), a reduction in triglycerides (about 12%), and an increase in plasma adiponectin levels (about 50%).
As most recipients currently require islets from multiple donors, a realistic estimate is that approximately 1500 islet transplants could be performed each year in the USA. And yet, current estimates suggest over one million Americans have T1DM. Moreover, as insulin independence wanes by 2–5 years post-transplant, patients would be queuing up for subsequent transplants (assuming repeated islet infusions are safe) (73). Given the shortage of suitable donors, the possibility of living donation has been offered (25).
