Human stem cell implants retrieved 174 days after implantation in Mouse

Mouse implanted with SC-β cells encapsulated with TMTD alginate. Cell encapsulation overcomes the need for immunosuppression by protecting therapeutic tissues from rejection by the host immune system. The most common method for islet encapsulation therapy is the formulation of isolated islets into alginate microspheres.

DAPI in blue; insulin (i) or NKX6.1 (j) in green; glucagon (i) or C-peptide (j) in red. Scale bars, 50 μm.
