Recovery after peripheral nerve injury remains a significant challenge. Extracellular matrix proteins and hydrogels of extracellular matrix components have been shown to improve regeneration in peripheral nerve entubulation models, especially over long distances. The chemical properties, ligand identity and density, and mechanical properties of the hydrogel can affect neurite extension. However, the importance of combinatorial effects between different components in co-gels of several… CONTINUE READING
