BioMedical Engineering OnLine | Abstract | Experimental evaluation and computational modeling of the effects of encapsulation on the time-profile of glucose-stimulated insulin release of pancreatic...

In type 1 diabetic patients, who have lost their ability to produce insulin, transplantation of pancreatic islet cells can normalize metabolic control in a manner that is not achievable with exogenous insulin. To be successful, this procedure has to address the problems caused by the immune and autoimmune responses to the graft.

Within this framework, it is of considerable interest to characterize the effect encapsulation has on the insulin response of pancreatic islets.
