Summary

The purpose of this study is to test whether treatment with a drug called alpha 1 antitrypsin (AAT, Prolastin, Grilfols, Inc.) can reduce the chance of getting diabetes in a specific situation. Sometimes patients have their pancreas gland removed for pain. Since the pancreas makes insulin from cells called islet cells, these are removed from the pancreas and returned to the body to try decrease the chance of diabetes. The only participants invited to this study are those individuals getting ready to have the pancreas surgery.
