Therapeutic application of electrospun nanofibrous meshes

Written by Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine Review of fabrication and functionalization techniques for electrospun nanofiber-based scaffolds for therapeutic purposes, and how the therapeutic nanofibrous meshes can be used in tissue engineering, by Hye Sung Kim and Hyuk Sang Yo from Kangwon National University (Republic of Korea). Biomimetic and biologically active scaffolds that can replace the natural extracellular matrix and provide a favorable environment to host cells to repopulate and resynthesize a new natural matrix have been an area of interest for regenerative medicine applications. Electrospun nanofibrous meshes are of particular interest as they mimic the natural ECM well, have a wider substrate dimension for cell...
