Abstract

Cell implantation has been garnering attention for the treatment of diverse diseases, including diabetes and cancers. Hydrogel-based scaffolds have been employed for obtaining biocompatible microenvironment and immunoisolation. Many types of cell implantation carriers were presented, but they have yet to be realized ideal cellular environment mainly due to has yet cell leakage problems from unwanted degradation and the low cell viabilities. Here, we develop a cell carton based on mechanically-strong hydrogel, tetra-polyethylene glycol (PEG), and characterize tetra-PEG material properties and potential for cell carriers. We envision that the present cell-spheroids carrier can be a cell implantation platform for cell therapy with less cell-loss and high cell-viability.
