Semipermeable hydrogels formed with a biocompatible alginate solution and Ba(2+) ions protect encapsulated cells and tissues from a foreign immune system. For the viability and metabolic activity of the encapsulated materials, a sufficient oxygen supply inside the capsules is necessary. Quantitative (19)F-MRI was performed on perfluorocarbon-loaded alginate capsules implanted into the peritoneal cavity, the musculus quadriceps femoris, and beneath the kidney capsule of rats, in order to… CONTINUE READING
