Templated agarose scaffolds for the support of motor axon regeneration into sites of complete spinal cord transection.

Abstract

Bioengineered scaffolds have the potential to support and guide injured axons after spinal cord injury, contributing to neural repair. In previous studies we have reported that templated agarose scaffolds can be fabricated into precise linear arrays and implanted into the partially injured spinal cord, organizing growth and enhancing the distance over which… (More)
