Local delivery of doxorubicin through supramolecular peptide amphiphile nanofiber gels
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
Peptide amphiphiles (PAs) self-assemble into supramolecular nanofiber gels that provide a suitable environment for encapsulation of both hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules. The PA gels have significant advantages for ...
Angiogenic heparin-mimetic peptide nanofiber gel improves regenerative healing of acute wounds
(American Chemical Society, 2017)
Wound repair in adult mammals typically ends with the formation of a scar, which prevents full restoration of the function of the healthy tissue, although most of the wounded skin heals. Rapid and functional recovery of ...
Heparin mimetic peptide nanofiber gel promotes regeneration of full thickness burn injury
(Elsevier Ltd, 2017)
Burn injuries are one of the most common types of trauma worldwide, and their unique physiology requires the development of specialized therapeutic materials for their treatment. Here, we report the use of synthetic, ...
Laminin mimetic peptide nanofibers regenerate acute muscle defect
(Acta Materialia Inc, 2017)
Skeletal muscle cells are terminally differentiated and require the activation of muscle progenitor (satellite) cells for their regeneration. There is a clinical need for faster and more efficient treatment methods for ...
