Influence of hydrogel mechanical properties and mesh size on vocal fold fibroblast extracellular matrix production and phenotype.
Current clinical management of vocal fold (VF) scarring produces inconsistent and often suboptimal results. Researchers are investigating a number of alternative treatments for VF lamina propria (LP)Expand

Thermoresponsive nanocomposite hydrogels with cell-releasing behavior.
Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm) hydrogels become more hydrophobic when they reversibly switch from a water-swollen to a deswollen state above the volume phase transition temperature (VPTT,Expand

Chitosan-based nanoparticles as a sustained protein release carrier for tissue engineering applications.
Chitosan/tripolyphosphate/chondroitin sulfate (Chi/TPP/CS) nanoparticles were prepared by an ionic gelation method to obtain a controlled release of proteins. Using Nel-like molecule-1 (Nell-1), aExpand

NELL-1 promotes cartilage regeneration in an in vivo rabbit model.
Repair of cartilage due to joint trauma remains challenging due to the poor healing capacity of cartilage and adverse effects related to current growth factor-based strategies. NELL-1 (Nel-likeExpand

Osteogenic potential of poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(dimethylsiloxane) hybrid hydrogels.
Growth factors have been shown to be potent mediators of osteogenesis. However, their use in tissue-engineered scaffolds not only can be costly but also can induce undesired responses in surroundingExpand

Design of a self-cleaning thermoresponsive nanocomposite hydrogel membrane for implantable biosensors.
Following implantation of a biosensor, adhesion of proteins and cells and eventual fibrous encapsulation will limit analyte diffusion and impair sensor performance. A thermoresponsive nanocompositeExpand

Development of a self-cleaning sensor membrane for implantable biosensors.
Fibrous tissue encapsulation may slow the diffusion of the target analyte to an implanted sensor and compromise the optical signal. Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm) hydrogels areExpand
