Abstract

The permeability of IgG was studied in microfabricated biocapsules with various pore sized membranes. Further, immunoselective characteristics were monitored by assessing viability and functionality of islets within biocapsules. Initial results indicate that the semipermeability of microfabricated biocapsules, along with their stability and biocompatibility, may provide an improved encapsulation device for immunoisolation of cell xenografts for hormone therapy.
