Problem Design Statement To examine the impacts of hydrogel thickness on the suitability of human prostate disease cells installed inside a polyethylene glycol diacrylate hydrogel. Furthermore, to survey the polymerization and cross-connecting marvels of PEGdA macromers and the diffusive conduct of progesterone through a PEGdA hydrogel lattice. The general objective of this venture is to plan an embodiment framework that offers proficient immunoprotection and powerful dissemination of oxygen, supplements, hormones, and metabolic squanders. This framework, alongside installed human prostate growth cells, will empower the rebuilding of un-controlled hormone levels regularly saw in older folks, and retard the manifestations of maturing.

Progesterone Diffusion

Slide 14

Progesterone Diffusion Observed Progesterone discharge over the long run High progesterone levels following 5 hours Progesterone level surpassed straight scope of adjusted bend Data changeability Sex hormone equipped for diffusing out of PEGdA system

Cell Viability Results Statistical Analysis: 2-test t-test α = 0.05 * Cell Titer-Blue TM Cell Viability Assay * Denotes critical drop from day 2 to day 3 * Denotes noteworthy drop from day 3 to day 4

Slide 16

Cell Viability Discussion Further information is expected to build up an important pattern and understanding Fluorescence readings near that of the negative control (cell culture medium) Increase number of cells per well or potentially increment brooding time to 3 or 4 hours

Slide 17

Overall Conclusions PEGdA reasonable material for cell embodiment Sub-deadly UV time necessity @ 14.5 min The work estimate accomplished takes into account the dissemination of progesterone Need to broaden cell reasonability considers for more solid translation

Slide 18

Future Work Continue to survey hydrogel thickness impact on cell suitability (augmented studies) Evaluate impacts of gel thickness on hormone discharge 2-D & 3-D investigations of the impacts of RGD cell attachment peptides on cell work Fabrication of small scale circles of indicated breadth In vivo examination of exemplification framework
