- ... Synthetic artificial vascular grafts have exhibited low patency rate and severe neointimal hyperplasia in replacing small-caliber arteries (<6 mm) because of their failure to generate a functional endothelium. In this study, small-caliber (2.0 mm) electrospun poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) vascular grafts were modified with a fusion protein VEGF–HGFI which consists of the class I hydrophobin (HGFI) an ...

- ... Repairing osteochondral defects (OCD) remains a formidable challenge due to the high complexity of native osteochondral tissue and the limited self-repair capability of cartilage. Osteochondral tissue engineering is a promising strategy for the treatment of OCD. In this study, we fabricated a novel integrated trilayered scaffold using silk fibroin and hydroxyapatite by combining paraffin-sphere le ...
