Improved human tenocyte proliferation and differentiation in vitro by optimized silk degumming.

Abstract

Tendon disorders are common clinical conditions. Tendon tissue engineering provides a new approach for tendon repair by integrating engineered substitutes with their native counterparts. Silk is considered to be a promising candidate for tendon engineering because of its biological and mechanical properties. However, a major concern with using silk for… (More)
