Axons are guided to their targets by a combination of haptotactic and chemotactic cues. We previously demonstrated that soluble neurotrophic factor concentration gradients guide axons in a model system. In an attempt to translate this model system to a device for implantation, our goal was to immobilize a stable neurotrophic concentration gradient for(More)
Using a canine critical-size segmental defect model, a two-phased study was undertaken to evaluate the healing efficacy of demineralized bone and cancellous chips (DBM-CC) enriched with osteoprogenitor cells using a Selective Cell Retention (SCR) technology. The goals of this study were: 1) to determine the bone-healing efficacy of SCR-enriched grafts(More)
In order to promote regeneration after spinal cord injury, growth factors have been applied in vivo to rescue ailing neurons and provide a path finding signal for regenerating neurites. We previously demonstrated that soluble growth factor concentration gradients can guide axons over long distances, but this model is inherently limited to in vitro(More)
