The permeability and permselectivity of asymmetric and particulate membranes towards glucose and proteins of various molecular sizes were studied, It was found that the skin layer of asymmetric membranes was permeable to glucose and insulin but effectively prevent the permeation of immunoglobulins. This result parallels our interest for the development of artificial pancreas. It was also found that skinless particulate membranes exhibited not only high permeation rates with respect to albumin and immunoglobulins but also good selectivity between these components. Thus, particulate membranes has the potential to be used in separating albumin from immunoglobulins for treating disorders related to immunoglobulin abnormalities. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
