Human hair keratin and its-based biomaterials for biomedical applications


Over the past few decades, naturally derived biomaterials have been extensively used in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine owing to their biological function, structural support, excellent biocompatibility, and favorable biodegradability characteristics. Traditionally, keratin has been extracted from wool, feathers, horns, and other animal sources… (More)
