"The survival advantage of pancreas after kidney transplant."
(Am J Transplant. 2019 Mar;19(3):823-830. doi: 10.1111/ajt.15106. Epub 2018 Oct 4.)

In this article:
"Patient survival after pancreas after kidney transplant (PAK) has been reported to be inferior to patient survival after simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant (SPK). The authors examine national data to further explore allograft (kidney and pancreas) and patient survival after PAK... [The authors found that] successful PAK offers a survival advantage compared with receiving neither a kidney nor a pancreas transplant. These data also suggest that receiving a pancreas (after kidney) transplant may have a protective effect on the kidney allograft."
