As the severe IBMIR reactions, especially the activation of the coagulation system and the complement cascade, occur in the first 2 days after transplantation, the heparin/sCR1 LBL approach can be a promising method for protecting the transplanted islets. Nevertheless, the protective effects and anti-thrombin activity of the LbL coatings are to be yet evaluated in vivo. , 2010). PEGylated multilayers were grown using LbL assembly of biotinylated PLL and streptavidin. , 2007). In another example, the rat islet cell membranes were first biotinylated through covalent reaction of the membrane proteins and NHS-ester groups of NHS-PEG-biotin.

The deposition conditions had been shown to greatly influence the islets viability, which well correlates with difference in charge density and toxicity of the polycation at high and neutral pH values. Additional protective outermost coating layer of phosphorylcholine (PC)-modified chondroitin-4-sulfate was introduced to reduce non-specific protein adsorption of the film. PC-moieties demonstrated remarkable repelling and hemocompatible properties. Increase in the coating thickness by adding additional layers of (Chitosan/Alginate) up to 5 bilayers did not adversely affect islets viability and insulin release, and the coated islets were viable up to 5 weeks of postencapsulation.

G) Confocal (left) overlaid on brightfield micrographs (right) of frozen sections of liver (L) after intraportal transplantation of islets (I) engineered with PEM films labeled with streptavidinCy3. Scale bars: b,e (top), g=50 μm; c,d,e (bottom)=10 μm. , 2011. Copyright 2011 American Chemical Society. Encapsulation and Surface Engineering of Pancreatic Islets: Advances and Challenges 21 deleterious effect on the islet viability (Fig. 6). The modification of PEG grafts with various functional molecules, such as biotin, hydrazide and azide, can extend the functional capabilities of the PLL-g-PEG-based LbL islet coatings.
