The thermoreversible gelation polymer (TGP) composed of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acryoxysuccinimide-co-n-butylmethacrylate) and diamino poly(ethylane glycol) was used to make microencapsulated islets and was examined in vitro. The microencapsulated islets were found to be active from day-1. the groups displayed a similar pattern of insulin secretion. The maximum insulin concentration was seen days 5 to 7, with no statistically significant difference. The morphological and functional stability of the method for islet microencapsulation can be satisfactory applied to transplantation for diabetic animals.
