Cell migration plays important roles in natural processes involving embryonic development, inflammation, wound healing, cancer metastasis and angiogenesis. Cell migration on various biomaterials is also believed to improve the rate of wound healing and implant therapies in the tissue-engineering field. This study measured the distance traversed, or mileage… CONTINUE READING
