As is the case in cell immunoisolation, in this application the rationale is to protect the cells from destruction by the immune system while they deliver products for different therapeutic purposes. One prominent application of encapsulated cells is in blood vessel engineering. Properly structured microvascular networks are essential for normal tissue function. Physiologically, blood vessels are required for transport of nutrients and oxygen to cells and tissues. When blood perfusion of tissue is altered, cells undergo starvation, which can lead to a pathologic state.

In contrast, the free (non-encapsulated) cells could be reused for two cycles only. The microspheres 34 Emmanuel C. Opara remained intact throughout repeated use demonstrating their capability as microbial cell nurseries in fermentation [90]. In an earlier study it had been shown that the production of lactic acid from glucose was enhanced by microencapsulation of Lactococcus lactis IO-1 cells [91]. 9 Summary It is apparent from the above review that there are many different applications of the cell microencapsulation technology that range from biomedicine to bio-industry.
