Advancements in type 1 diabetes mellitus treatments have vastly improved in recent years. The move toward a bioartificial pancreas and other fully implantable systems could help restore patient's glycemic control. However, the long-term success of implantable medical devices is often hindered by the foreign body response. Fibrous encapsulation "walls off" the implant to the surrounding tissue, impairing its functionality. In this study we aim to examine how streptozotocin-induced diabetes affects fibrous capsule formation and composition surrounding implantable drug delivery devices following subcutaneous implantation in a rodent model. After 2 weeks of implantation, the fibrous capsule surrounding the devices were examined by means of Raman spectroscopy, micro-computed tomography (μCT), and histological analysis. Results revealed no change in mean fibrotic capsule thickness between diabetic and healthy animals as measured by μCT. Macrophage numbers (CCR7 and CD163 positive) remained similar across all groups. True component analysis also showed no quantitative difference in the alpha-smooth muscle actin and extracellular matrix proteins. Although principal component analysis revealed significant secondary structural difference in collagen I in the diabetic group, no evidence indicates an influence on fibrous capsule composition surrounding the device. This study confirms that diabetes did not have an effect on the fibrous capsule thickness or composition surrounding our implantable drug delivery device. Impact Statement Understanding the impact diabetes has on the foreign body response (FBR) to our implanted material is essential for developing an effective drug delivery device. We used several approaches (Raman spectroscopy and micro-computed tomography imaging) to demonstrate a well-rounded understanding of the diabetic impact on the FBR to our devices, which is imperative for its clinical translation.
