Controlling oxygen release from hollow microparticles for prolonged cell survival under hypoxic environment.


The survival of cells in the 3D scaffold until the ingrowth of blood vessels is one of the most important challenges in tissue engineering for producing a clinically relevant volume of tissue. In this study, perfluorooctane emulsion (oxygen carrier)-loaded hollow microparticles (PFO-HPs) were prepared as a scaffolding system which can allow timely release… (More)
