Delivery of growth factors for tissue (e.g. bone, cartilage) or cell repair (e.g. nerves) is about to gain important potential as a future therapeutic tool. Depending on the targeted cell type and its state of differentiation, growth factors can activate or regulate a variety of cellular functions. Therefore, strictly localized delivery regimens at well-defined kinetics appear to be logical prerequisites to assure safe and efficacious therapeutic use of such factors and avoid unwanted side… CONTINUE READING
