Mesoporous silica nanoparticles in tissue engineering — a perspective

Written by Nanomedicine

In a Review exclusively free for members, Jessica Maria Rosenholm et al. sum up the latest developments and possible future applications of mesoporous silica nanoparticles in regenerative medicine. A typical approach to tissue engineering for regenerative medicine is to use biologically inspired biomaterials to support the transplantation of cells to and survival and localization of cells at the site needed to repair diseased or damaged tissue. However, an alternative approach is to modulate the stem cell niche at the site to activate endogenous repair mechanisms. Mesoporous silica nanoparticles can be designed for cell targeted uptake and temporally and spatially controlled...
