    This is a deja vu moment for me. 20 years ago companies like VivoRx (Steven Craig and Patrick Soon-Shiong) and Encelle (Anton Usala) attempted the same thing, encapsulated islets, and failed miserably. There were many other companies that tried and failed at this in the early 90's, their names escape me now. Interestingly Patrick Soon-Shiong went on to become one of the richest people in Southern California, his net worth is north of 14 billion. His patients Steven Craig and Clarissa Hooper have long since passed away. History does repeat itself!
