  2. 2. Evaluation of Alginate Microcapsules for Use in Transplantation of Islets of Langerhans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Aileen King; Simon Howell; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; Alginate; biocompatibility; cytokines; epimerases; islet transplantation; microencapsulation; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi; medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Cell Biology;

    Abstract : Transplantation of islets of Langerhans is a potential treatment of type 1 diabetes that aims to restore normal glucose homeostasis. Microencapsulation of islets could enable transplantation in the absence of immunosuppression, which would be beneficial as the side effects associated with immunosuppression outweigh the potential benefits of islet transplantation.
