Assessment of decellularized porcine diaphragm conjugated with gold nanomaterials as a tissue scaffold for wound healing.

Abstract

One million Americans suffer from chronic wounds every year with diabetics and older populations representing the majority. Mechanisms that may be responsible for the reduced healing response in these patients include reduction in growth factors or vascularization and an increase in free radical levels. The focus of this study was to develop a biocompatible… (More)
