- ... Polyurethane (PU) has been utilized in the development of various blood-contacting medical devices owing to their good biocompatibility and mechanical properties. The present study highlights the design and engineering of biomimetic polyurethanes with enhanced hemocompatibility by blending it with polyethylene glycol (PEG) and modifying its surface using gelatin as a surface modifier. The physicoc ...

- ... For skin tissue engineering, an ideal scaffold should mimic the natural extracellular matrix of the native skin. In this study, we reported a novel elastic sub-micron fiber scaffold blending poly (ε-caprolactone-co-lactide) (PLCL) and Pluronic at different ratios by electrospinning. PLCL and Pluronic were co-electrospun with the ratio of 100/0, 99/1, 95/5, 90/10, 85/15, and 75/25. These scaffolds ...
