The problem

Our cells play complex roles to ensure our health and 

safety. When our cells are missing, damaged or

diseased, our body can not function correctly. 

 

Encellin's approach provides a safe way to replace

those missing, damaged, or diseased cells with a

minimally invasive implant under the skin.

We will address T1D (type 1 diabetes) first

In type 1 diabetes (T1D), the cells that detect glucose and secrete insulin are missing (in red). This results in uncontrolled blood glucose levels, which if left untreated can be deadly. In the most severe cases, T1D patients will receive  transplants to return those missing cells. 

We will enclose these cells within our cell delivery platform to restore glucose levels.
