Injectable cell therapy would provide a patient-friendly procedure for treatment of degenerated or wounded tissue. Biodegradable injectable porous microspheres were fabricated to use as dual-purpose microcarriers for cell culture and injectable scaffold for tissue regeneration. Gas foaming in a water-in-oil-in-water double emulsion was performed for fabricating the well-interconnected porous microcarriers using poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA). The gas foaming conditions were finely tuned… CONTINUE READING
