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.
