A macrophage-activating, injectable hydrogel to sequester endogenous growth factors for in situ angiogenesis.

Abstract

Biomaterials scaffolds designed for many regenerative applications are expected to support neo-vascularisation, which is now being hampered by two limitations - the instability of exogenous growth factors (GFs) that are delivered to promote angiogenesis; and the loss of extracellular matrix components that bind and stabilise GFs. Here, we report the design… (More)
