Graphene oxide enhances alginate encapsulated cells viability and functionality while not affecting the foreign body response
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-05-21)
The combination of protein-coated graphene oxide (GO) and microencapsulation technology has moved a step forward in the challenge of improving long-term alginate encapsulated cell survival and sustainable therapeutic protein ...
3D Printed Porous Polyamide Macrocapsule Combined with Alginate Microcapsules for Safer Cell-Based Therapies
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018-05-31)
Cell microencapsulation is an attractive strategy for cell-based therapies that allows the implantation of genetically engineered cells and the continuous delivery of de novo produced therapeutic products. However, the ...
Review of Advanced Hydrogel-Based Cell Encapsulation Systems for Insulin Delivery in Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) is characterized by the autoimmune destruction of beta-cells in the pancreatic islets. In this regard, islet transplantation aims for the replacement of the damaged beta-cells through minimally ...
BSA- and Elastin-Coated GO, but Not Collagen-Coated GO, Enhance the Biological Performance of Alginate Hydrogels
The use of embedded cells within alginate matrices is a developing technique with great clinical applications in cell-based therapies. However, one feature that needs additional investigation is the improvement of ...
