The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of poly(NiPAAm-co-AAc) blended with hyaluronic acid (HA) as an injectable cell vehicle and a cell therapeutic agent in the form of a supporting matrix for the chondrogenic differentiation of rabbit chondrocytes. Specially, rabbit chondrocytes were embedded in blended hydrogels co-encapsulation with dexamethasone (Dex) and growth factors for enhancing the chondrogenic differentiation. Blended hydrogel constructs consisting of embedded cells co… CONTINUE READING
