Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aim of cell microencapsulation technology is to treat multiple diseases in the absence of immunosuppression. Using this technique, cells are immobilized within carefully designed capsules that allow the long-term function of the graft. Although the potential impact of this field is likely to be wide-ranging, the past few years have seen several 'firsts' that have brought the whole technology much closer to a realistic clinical application.
