  author={W. Mark Saltzman and William L. Olbricht},
  journal={Nature Reviews Drug Discovery},
The creation of efficient methods for manufacturing biotechnology drugs — many of which influence fundamental but complex cell behaviours, such as proliferation, migration and differentiation — is creating new opportunities for tissue repair. Many agents are potent and multifunctional; that is, they produce different effects within different tissues. Therefore, control of tissue concentration and spatial localization of delivery is essential for safety and effectiveness. Synthetic systems that… CONTINUE READING
