Fibrin is a natural biopolymer with many interesting properties, such as biocompatibility, bioresorbability, ease of processing, ability to be tailored to modify the conditions of polymerization, and potential for incorporation of both cells and cell mediators. Moreover, the fibrin network has a nanometric fibrous structure, mimicking extracellular matrix, and it can also be used in autologous applications. Therefore, fibrin has found many applications in tissue engineering, combined with cells… CONTINUE READING
