Identification of a biocompatible immunoprotective membrane to prevent graft rejection remained elusive until the development of microcapsules formulated in alginate. We report in vit - ro parathyroid hormone secretion from encapsulated human parathyroid tissue using a highly biocompatible alginate produced under GMP conditions. The in vitro function of human parathyroid tissue fragments was maintained after 8 days of culture of alginate microcapsules in serum-free conditions. The structural features of parathyroid tissue was maintained in these culture conditions. Using a biopolymer of clinical grade may be a crucial step toward a clinical use of this technique in parathyroid allotransplantion without immunosuppression
