Abstract

A static culture model employing cylindrical collagen-hepatocyte gels is reported for large scale testing of conditions relevant to the three compartment hollow fiber bioartificial liver. High density hepatocyte cultivation was achieved by cell entrapment within the collagen-hepatocyte gel. Hepatocyte viability was assessed by vital staining, gel contraction, and insulin utilization. Measures of hepatocyte-specific function included albumin synthesis, ureagenesis, lidocaine biotransformation, and cholate conjugation. Although hepatocyte viability remained stable through the seven day incubation period, hepatocyte functions were not uniformly preserved. Albumin synthesis remained stable, while representative P-450 and conjugation activities decreased with time. This static culture system will facilitate the development of a hollow fiber bioartificial liver which utilizes cylindrical collagen-hepatocyte gels.
