Protease-Activated Quantum Dot Probes
Protease activity has been demonstrated to be an important prognostic and predictive marker in diseases such as cancer and stroke. As such, much attention has been given to the development of diagnostic tools that would ...
In vivo and in vitro remodeling of a small intestinal submucosa extracellular matrix cardiac patch in an ovine model and splashing bioreactor
Previous studies have demonstrated that surgical patches comprised of small intestinal submucosa (SIS)-derived extracellular matrix (ECM) have biological remodeling potential in various tissues. In this series of experiments, ...
Endothelial cell and mural progenitor cell co-culture to promote angiogenesis in tissue engineered constructs
The need for tissue engineered organs is great since only 15% of those on the transplant waiting list received organs in 2006. The ability to vascularize a tissue engineered construct is one of the major hurdles for tissue ...
