Elastin based cell-laden injectable hydrogels with tunable gelation, mechanical and biodegradation properties.

Abstract

Injectable hydrogels made from extracellular matrix proteins such as elastin show great promise for various biomedical applications. Use of cytotoxic reagents, fixed gelling behavior, and lack of mechanical strength in these hydrogels are the main associated drawbacks. The aim of this study was to develop highly cytocompatible and injectable elastin-based… (More)
