Cytokine profiles in crevicular fluid during orthodontic tooth movement of short and long durations.
BACKGROUND Orthodontic treatment induces a distortion of the extracellular matrix of the periodontium, resulting in alterations in cytoskeletal configuration. Cytokines are known to facilitate thisExpand

Chemistry and the biological response against immunoisolating alginate-polycation capsules of different composition.
Implantation of microencapsulated cells has been proposed as a therapy for a wide variety of diseases. An absolute requirement is that the applied microcapsules have an optimal biocompatibility. TheExpand

Tissue responses against immunoisolating alginate-PLL capsules in the immediate posttransplant period.
Alginate-polylysine (PLL) capsules are commonly applied for immunoisolation of living cells for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases. Large-scale application of the technique, however, isExpand

DAMP production by human islets under low oxygen and nutrients in the presence or absence of an immunoisolating-capsule and necrostatin-1
In between the period of transplantation and revascularization, pancreatic islets are exposed to low-oxygen and low-nutrient conditions. In the present study we mimicked those conditions in vitro toExpand

Identification of TLR2/TLR6 signalling lactic acid bacteria for supporting immune regulation
Although many lactic acid bacteria (LAB) influence the consumer’s immune status it is not completely understood how this is established. Bacteria-host interactions between bacterial cell-wallExpand

Factors influencing the adequacy of microencapsulation of rat pancreatic islets.
The observation that only a portion of all alginate-polylysine microcapsules are overgrown after implantation suggests that physical imperfections of individual capsules, rather than the chemicalExpand

The Impact of Lactobacillus plantarum WCFS1 Teichoic Acid D-Alanylation on the Generation of Effector and Regulatory T-cells in Healthy Mice
To date it remains unclear how probiotics affect the immune system. Bacterial envelope components may play an essential role, as these are the first to establish bacterial-host cell interactions.Expand

The role of pathogen-associated molecular patterns in inflammatory responses against alginate based microcapsules.
Alginate-based microcapsules are used for immunoisolation of cells to release therapeutics on a minute-to-minute basis. Unfortunately, alginate-based microcapsules are suffering from varying degreesExpand

Kinetics of intraperitoneally infused insulin in rats. Functional implications for the bioartificial pancreas.
Intraperitoneal transplantation of encapsulated islets can restore normoglycemia in diabetic recipients but not normal glucose tolerance nor normal insulin responses to a physiological stimulus. ThisExpand
