Title
Cell-laden Polymeric Microspheres for Biomedical Applications
Abstract

Microsphere technology serves as an efficient and effective platform for cell applications (in vitro cell culture and in vivo cell delivery) due to its mimicry of the 3D native environment, high surface area:volume ratio, and ability to isolate the entrapped cells from the environment. Properties of cell-laden microspheres are determined by the type of application and the cell. While high cell densities are preferable for large-scale therapeutic biomolecule production in vitro, an immunoprotective barrier is most important for allogeneic pancreatic islet transplantation into patients. Furthermore, the biological cells require a suitable microenvironment in terms of its physical and biochemical properties. Here, we discuss applications of cell-laden microspheres and their corresponding design parameters.

TrendsPolymers for cell-laden microspheres are discussed.Fabrication techniques and key parameters regarding cell-laden microspheres for specific applications are explored.Several uses of cell-laden microspheres (in vitro production of cells and biomolecules, as well as in vivo delivery of cells for tissue regeneration or therapeutic biomolecule secretion on-site) are discussed and summarized.
