Improved cellularization and angiogenesis using collagen scaffolds chemically conjugated with vascular endothelial growth factor.


Much research has focused on developing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) delivery systems to enhance angiogenesis in wound repair and in tissue engineering. Collagen can be used as a delivery system because of its biocompatibility, but its fast degradation rate and limited affinity with growth factors are disadvantageous for maintaining a… (More)
