The expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) was studied in 8-week-old non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice and low-dose streptozocin-treated (LDS) mice. ICAM-1 expression in NOD mice was observed at the islet periphery, corresponding to the perislet venular network, within the islet and on scattered elements along septa of the exocrine portion of the pancreas. Image analysis demonstrated that LDS-treated animals had less ICAM-1 immunoreactivity within and around the islets compared to NOD mice. At the ultrastructural level the peri-islet vessels were found to be filled with mononuclear elements. Moreover, endothelial cells showed signs of activation, and margination of monocytes and polymorphonuclear leukocytes was observed.
