Growth factors, first known for their essential role in the initiation of mitosis, are required for a variety of cellular processes and their localized delivery is considered as a rational approach in their therapeutic application to assure a safe and effective treatment while avoiding unwanted adverse effects. Noncovalent immobilization of growth factors(More)
CONTEXT Growth factors act in an integrated manner to promote the wound-healing process. However, probably due to early inactivation of these molecules in the wound site, their topical administration scarcely leads to a significant improvement in chronic wound repair. OBJECTIVES With the aim of identifying improved therapeutics, a sodium carboxymethyl(More)
INTRODUCTION The number of patients suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing worldwide.

Silk fibroin (SF) and poly(lactide-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) have been proved to be invaluable polymers in the field wound healing. This study aims at optimizing the electrospinning process of those polymers to make a hybrid membrane as a chronic wounds dressing. After characterizing the scaffolds, PLGA/SF (2:1), and PLGA scaffolds were selected for further(More)
