Porous Silk Scaffolds for Delivery of Growth Factors and Stem Cells to Enhance Bone Regeneration.Kaplan, David, 1953-
Stem cell-based tissue engineering shows promise for bone regeneration and requires artificial microenvironments to enhance the survival, proliferation and differentiation of the seeded cells. Silk fibroin, as a natural protein polymer, has unique properties for tissue regeneration. The present study aimed to evaluate the influence of porous silk scaffolds on rat bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) by ... read more
