Lancet Letter 1989 UW Solution Islet Isolation | 20220823


Lancet Letter 1989 UW Solution Islet Isolation | 20220823 | Michel van der Burg | michelvanderburg•com | June 1989 preparing first submission for publication as letter in the Lancet medical journal the new concept of using the UW solution ( the University of Wisconsin organ preservation solution) for isolation and complete purification of islets of Langerhans in the laboratory for transplantation in diabetic patients. Later that year that exciting discovery was presented at meetings in Minneapolis, USA, and Barcelona, Spain. Details in yesterday’s post. Submission for publication as a letter in the Lancet had had no succes 😉
Final draft text produced on my personal Macintosh ED and Imagewriter-II matrix printer with Geneva font.

Minneapolis 1989 Poster UW Solution Islet Isolation | 20220822

Minneapolis 1989 Poster UW Solution Islet Isolation | 20220822 | Michel van der Burg | michelvanderburg•com

September 1989 in Minneapolis, USA, I first publicly introduced that new exciting discovery of using the UW solution ( the University of Wisconsin organ preservation solution) for isolation and complete purification of islets of Langerhans in the laboratory for transplantation in diabetic patients (REF 1). The next month at a meeting in Barcelona, Spain, this rather radical new concept was introduced (REF 2, 3). June 1989 submission for publication as a letter in the Lancet had had no succes 😉
Poster designed and produced on my personal Macintosh ED and Imagewriter-II matrix printer, allowing full width printing over multiple pages in landscape (a low cost do-it-yourself discovery by me, at a time when posters were prepared on poster boards by graphical professionals using photography and special lettering techniques for around $400). Original MacDraw II file conversion with LibreOffice Vanilla.
