Effect of growth factors on chondrogenic differentiation of rabbit mesenchymal cells embedded in injectable hydrogels.


In this study, a hydrogel scaffold of poly(NiPAAm-co-AAc) was utilized as an injectable delivery carrier containing cell and growth factors for engineering of cartilage tissue. Rabbit mesenchymal cells (MCs) were embedded in composite hydrogels co-encapsulated with transforming growth factor beta-3 (TGF beta-3), or basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF… (More)
