Low oxygen tension increased fibronectin fragment induced catabolic activities--response prevented with biomechanical signals.
INTRODUCTION: The inherent low oxygen tension in normal cartilage has implications on inflammatory conditions associated with osteoarthritis (OA). Biomechanical signals will additionally contribute to changes in tissue ...
The application of plastic compression to modulate fibrin hydrogel mechanical properties.
The inherent biocompatibility of fibrin hydrogels makes them an attractive material for use in a wide range of tissue engineering applications. Despite this, their relatively low stiffness and high compliance limits their ...
