Novel Growth Factor Delivery Systems from Self-Assembling Peptide (SAP) Hydrogels
Growth factors are important signalling molecules in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, but their inherent instability, lasting only minute to hours in vivo, presents an obstacle to sustained and controlled delivery. This is particularly difficult to achieve in the brain, where the blood brain barrier (BBB) prevents systemic delivery. For this reason, much research is currently directed at incorporating growth factors into supportive tissue...[Show more]
