Tissue engineering is a promising technique for cartilage repair. Toward this goal, a porous collagen-glycosaminoglycan (CG) scaffold was loaded with different concentrations of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and evaluated as a growth factor delivery device. The biological response was assessed by monitoring the amount of type II collagen and(More)
Reconstituted type I collagen fibres have received considerable interest as tendon implant materials due to their chemical and structural similarity to the native tissue. Fibres produced through a semi-continuous extrusion process were cross-linked with different concentrations of the zero-length cross-linker 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide(More)
Biomimetic scaffolds hold great promise for therapeutic repair of cartilage, but although most scaffolds are tested with cells in vitro, there are very few ex vivo models (EVMs) where adult cartilage and scaffolds are co-cultured to optimize their interaction prior to in vivo studies. This study describes a simple, non-compressive method that is applicable(More)
