Effects of Varying Thrombin and Calcium Concentration on the Structure, Mechanical Properties, and Cellular Compatibility of Fibrin Gels

Wang, Rebecca
2012

The creation and subsequent implantation of engineered heart tissue (EHT) serves as a promising treatment of complications resulting from cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although fibrin gels have previously been used as scaffolds for EHT, little is known about the effects of changing concentrations of reagents during their formation on their ultimate usability. Ultimately, we wish to de... read more
