The Efficacy of Polylysine, Lysine Monomer and Polyethylene Glycol as Excipients for the Controlled Release of Nerve Growth Factor from Freeze Dry Silk Scaffolds.

Daruvala, Sanaya T.

The controlled release of nerve growth factor (NGF) from 2D freeze-dry silk fibroin scaffolds impregnated with various excipients was studied. It is important to develop a suitable release mechanism of NGF from silk scaffolds because it can potentially provide a more effective clinical method for treating conditions such as peripheral nerve injury. This study also advances our knowledg... read more
