Abstract Fickian diffusion into a core-shell geometry is modeled. The interior core mimics pancreatic Langerhan islets and the exterior shell acts as inert protection. The consumption of oxygen diffusing into the cells is approximated using Michaelis-Menten kinetics. The problem is transformed to dimensionless units and solved numerically. Two regimes are identified, one that is diffusion limited and the other consumption limited. A regression is fit that describes the concentration at the cente...

Cell-based implantable artificial tissues are most promising for the long-term treatment of endocrine diseases, such as diabetes. One type of a bioartificial pancreas device consists of calcium alginate microbeads containing insulin-secreting cells and is surrounded by a poly(L-lysine) (PLL) membrane. The membrane is semipermeable, allowing cellular nutrients and metabolites to diffuse through but excluding the antibodies and cytotoxic cells of the host, thus immunoprotecting the cells. The devi...

The diffusion coefficient and permaebility, together with the oxygen uptake rate, have been measured in slices of respiring tissue. Values of these quantities are given for mouse kidney cortex and for implanted tumours of Lewis lung carcinoma in the mouse, and the fibrosarcoma SSB1a in the rat. The diffusion coefficient at 22°C is 1.3·10−5·cm2·s−1 in the kidney, and has the higher value of 1.6·10−5·cm2·s−1 in both tumours. The solubility in all three tissues is similar to that in saline.

THE equations defining the relationship between the apparent size distribution, that is, that observed in a section and the actual size distribution of spherical and ellipsoidal bodies were derived by Wicksell1,2. With the assumption that these bodies are evenly distributed, the relationship can be expressed in the form of Abelian integrals, which by approximation can be converted into linear equation systems adapted for practical calculation.
