Abstract Tissue engineering represents an attractive potential for regeneration of engineered functional pulmonary tissue. Hyaluronic acid, an extracellular matrix component promotes the growth and proliferation of most cells. The high water affinity of hyaluronic acid (HA) adversely affects its application in the field of tissue engineering. A copolymer of hyaluronic acid and poly(2-hydroxyethylmethacrylate), [poly(HEMA)] appeared as a good choice for the synthesis of a natural-synthetic… CONTINUE READING
