Assessing the Effects of VEGF Releasing Microspheres on the Angiogenic and Foreign Body Response to a 3D Printed Silicone-Based Macroencapsulation Device

It has been established that the successful development of a highly interconnected prevascularized network has the potential to resolve the diffusion limitations of newly seeded and transplanted islet cells, and ultimately reduce the period of cellular reconnection to host vasculature and improve islet viability within the macroencapsulation device
