Sufficient neovascularization of neotissue is currently a limiting factor for the engineering of large tissue constructs. 45S5 Bioglass has been investigated extensively in bone tissue engineering but there has been relatively little previous research on its application to soft-tissue engineering. The objectives of this study were to investigate the use of 45S5 Bioglass in soft-tissue engineering scaffolds using in vitro and in vivo models. A fibroblast cell line (208F) was used for in vitro… CONTINUE READING
