Islets encapsulation is a promising approach for the treatment of Type I diabetes. On page 667, Daniel G. Anderson and co-workers report a novel design of microcapsules with core–shell structures using two-fluid co-axial electro-jetting. Improved encapsulation and diabetes correction is achieved in a single step by simply confining the islets in the core region of the capsules.
