A biodegradable fibrin scaffold for mesenchymal stem cell transplantation.

Abstract

A potential therapy to enhance healing of bone tissue is to deliver isolated mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to the site of a lesion to promote bone formation. A key issue within this technology is the development of an injectable system for the delivery of MSCs. Fibrin gel exploits the final stage of the coagulation cascade in which fibrinogen molecules are… (More)
