OBJECTIVE To evaluate collagen(Col)-hyaluronan (HA)-chondroitin sulfate (CS) tri-copolymer as a new biomimetic biodegradable polymer scaffold for application of the articular cartilage tissue engineering. METHODS The Col-HA-CS tri-copolymer was prepared by freezing and lyophilization and was cross-linked by 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethy inaminoproyl) carbodiimide (EDC). The morphological characteristics of the matrices were evaluated by the SME and HE stainings. The rabbit chondrocytes were isolated… CONTINUE READING
