The type and composition of alginate and hyaluronic-based hydrogels influence the viability of stem cells of the apical papilla.

OBJECTIVE The goal of the present work was to evaluate in vitro and in vivo the influence of various types and compositions of natural hydrogels on the viability and metabolic activity of SCAPs. METHODS Two alginate, three hyaluronic-based (Corgel™) hydrogel formulations and Matrigel were characterized for their mechanical, surface and microstructure… CONTINUE READING
