Tailoring the degradation of hydrogels formed from multivinyl poly(ethylene glycol) and poly(vinyl alcohol) macromers for cartilage tissue engineering.

Abstract

Tuning the degradation profiles of polymer cell carriers to match cell and tissue growth is an important design parameter for (cartilage) tissue engineering. In this study, degradable hydrogels were fabricated from divinyl, tetrafunctional poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) and multivinyl, multifunctional poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) macromers to form homopolymer and… (More)
