Rheological characterization of physically crosslinked peptide- and protein-based hydrogels is widely reported in the literature. In this review, we focus on solid injectable hydrogels, which are commonly referred to as 'shear-thinning and rehealing' materials. This class of what sometimes also are called 'yield-stress' materials holds exciting promise for biomedical applications that require well-defined morphological and mechanical properties after delivery to a desired site through a… CONTINUE READING
