This study is an investigation to evaluate how the controlled release of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) affects the hair follicle growth of mice in different hair cycle stages: second anagen and second telogen. bFGF was incorporated into biodegradable gelatin hydrogels for its controlled release. After subcutaneous implantation of gelatin hydrogels incorporating 0, 0.7, 7, and 70 microg of bFGF or injection of 0 and 70 microg of free bFGF into the backs of mice, hair follicle growth was… CONTINUE READING
