Novel synthetic bio-mimic polymers for potential cell delivery therapy
Xiao, Yin, Peng , Hui, Mao, Xueli, Chen, Lan, Whittaker, Andrew, & Crawford, Ross W. (2008) Novel synthetic bio-mimic polymers for potential cell delivery therapy. In 8th World Biomaterials Congress 2008 Amsterdam, Curran Associates, Inc, RAI Congress Centre, Amsterdam, p. 2217.
Cell-based therapy is one of the major potential therapeutic strategies for cardiovascular, neuronal and degenerative diseases in recent years. Synthetic biodegradable polymers have been utilized increasingly in pharmaceutical, medical and biomedical engineering. Control of the interaction of living cells and biomaterials surfaces is one of the major goals in the design and development of new polymeric biomaterials in tissue engineering. The aims of this study is to develop a novel bio-mimic polymeric materials which will facilitate the delivery cells, control cell bioactivities and enhance the focal integration of graft cells with host tissues.
