Microencapsulated human parathyroid tissue preserves the viability and high ability to secrete parathormone in long-term culture that indicates on perspective to further study the efficiency of using this tissue in the presence of compensated hypofunctional state of parathyroid system in experimental animals.

Keywords: Parathyroid, microencapsulation, cultivation, histology, parathormone.
