Embedded adrenal cells graft reduced local and early nonspecific inflammatory phenomena which follow agarose beads implantation.


Microencapsulation of adrenal cells is proposed for reducing the nonspecific inflammatory reaction observed around polymer implants. This hypothesis was tested by comparing both host cellular reaction and the surrounding graft cell populations which appeared either when agarose embedded cells or when empty agarose beads were implanted. Our results showed… (More)
