In vivo studies showed that implants of bacterial nanocellulose cause no foreign object reaction.


There were no altered tissue structures (so-called fibrosis) or encapsulations (defence action of the body to isolate the foreign substance) or the formation of so-called giant cells around the implant [1]. In a study on mice it was shown that short-term inflammatory reactions could occur on and around the implant, which decreased with time (up to 12 months follow-up) or completely disappeared [2].
