Cellular encapsulation is an advanced method for the implantation of living cellular systems to provide unlimited drug delivery. Cellular encapsulation is used for major applications, including the immobilization of allogeneic or xenogeneic cells in semipermeable membranes and immune protective membranes to deliver biological products to patients without the need of immunosuppression, and for treating secretory cell dysfunction. Cellular encapsulation obviates the need for surgical procedures, reduces the burden of cell sourcing, and provides target drug delivery.
The cellular encapsulation technique is used where the transplanted cells are protected from tissue rejection by enveloping the cells artificially, such as cell grafting. Delivering the therapeutic molecules across the blood brain barrier to the brain parenchyma is too difficult, and for resolving this issue, cellular encapsulation delivers the therapeutic molecules directly to the brain.
A majority of the companies involved in cellular encapsulation are bringing in new technologies and advanced tissue engineering techniques to yield a well-established chemistry. Cellular encapsulation, on a broad category, includes microencapsulation and macro encapsulation, and these are the generally used types of cellular encapsulation in alginate hydrogels. The end user segments of cellular encapsulation include research centers and institutes, diagnostic laboratories, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
