Incorporation of protein-eluting microspheres into biodegradable nerve guidance channels for controlled release.
Nerve guidance channels (NGCs) promote axonal regeneration after transection injury of the peripheral nerve or spinal cord, yet this regeneration is limited. To enhance regeneration further, weExpand

Synthesis of degradable poly(L-lactide-co-ethylene glycol) porous tubes by liquid-liquid centrifugal casting for use as nerve guidance channels.
Biodegradable nerve guidance channels are advantageous, obviating the need for their removal after regeneration; however, most channels lack the appropriate mechanical properties for soft tissueExpand

Biomaterials for neural-tissue engineering — Chitosan supports the survival, migration, and differentiation of adult-derived neural stem and progenitor cells
Neural precursor cells (NPCs or stem and progenitor cells) are promising in transplantation strategies to treat an injury to the central nervous system, such as a spinal cord injury (SCI), because ...
