Example text

First, high-viscosity alginate is recommended as it results in a decreased formation of tails or strains during droplet formation and in turn a more uniform structure to the beads. Second, alginate with an intermediate concentration of guluronic acid molecules is employed rather than low guluronic acid content (low-G) alginate which has been seen to swell and break after implantation. 144,145 Alginate purification schemes have also been developed to substantially reduce host response. In order to address the potential for encapsulated cells protruding through the membrane, a two-step method of cell encapsulation was developed.

The major polymers currently under investigation for the encapsulation of live cells include alginate, hydroxyethyl methacrylate-methyl methacrylate (HEMA-MMA) and other hydrogels, polyacrylonitrile-polyvinyl chloride (PAN-PVC), hollow fiber membranes (HFMs), siliceous encapsulates, cellulose membranes and molecular variations on each of the above. g. g. 3 (opposite) Photomicrographs of (A) HepG2 mammalian cells encapsulated in alginate±chitosan±polyethylene glycol (PEG) ± poly-L-lysine±alginate (ACPPA) microcapsules in minimum essential medium (MEM) 5 days after coating, empty ACPPA microcapsules in physiological solution.
