The biostability of poly(acrylonitrile-co-vinyl chloride) (P(AN/VC)) hollow fibre membranes was assessed in the rat peritoneal cavity over a 12 month period. The mechanical and chemical stabilities of the hollow fibre membrane (HFM) were characterized by measuring its tensile strength and...
The technique of cryopreservation (maintenance of biological samples in a state of ‘suspended animation’ at cryogenic temperatures), its potential use in tissue engineering applications and current obstacles to the development of effective cryopreservation methods for tissues are reviewed. A...
The host response to a microporous material that induces neovascularization at the material-tissue interface was studied in terms of the number and types of cells invading the membrane, the degree of vascularization at the material-tissue interface, and the characteristics of the surrounding...
An understanding of inflammatory responses is important in a wide variety of tissue engineering applications. This review describes the current understanding of a central aspect of inflammatory responses, the adhesion of leucocytes to blood vessel walls prior to their emigration into tissues....
Hepatocyte transplantation on implantable devices is a tissue engineering approach to improve the treatment of liver disease and the efficacy of ex vivo gene therapy. Diverse physiological functions and high metabolic activity of the liver represent significant challenges to engineering...
For many disorders of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) for which there are no effective treatments, transplantation of RPE cells may provide a viable means of restoring function. Using a solvent casting technique, we have manufactured thin films of poly( l -lactic acid) and poly( dl...
A rat pheochromocytoma cell line (PC12) was encapsulated in a water-insoluble hydroxyethyl methacrylate-methyl methacrylate copolymer by interfacial precipitation from a polyethylene glycol 200 solution into phosphate-buffered saline. The resulting capsules (660 ± 44 μm in diameter; 84 ± 27...
Several extracellular matrix (ECM) configurations involving type I collagen and Matrigel were examined for their ability to support differentiated function and polarity of cultured adult rat hepatocytes. Collagen sandwich- and Matrigel-based cultures yielded superior and comparable albumin...
