Additionally, tumor 3D spheroids cultured with CPAP monocytes showed an antitumor immune response similar to that of monocytes from healthy donors, which corroborates the crucial role of [HIF1[alpha] and VEGF in OSA monocytes.
In the case of encapsulated spheroids, the major mass transport limitation is determined by the spheroid itself and the matrix permeability can be ignored [56, 57].
