Simultaneous pancreas–kidney transplantation offers survival benefits in type 1 diabetes

Choosing simultaneous pancreas–kidney transplantation as the preferred treatment strategy for patients with type 1 diabetes and end-stage renal disease could nearly halve the risk for death 10 years later compared with kidney transplantation alone, research suggests.
