One Biomaterial Composition Won’t Work For All Applications
Tissue microenvironment affects the performance of implanted biomaterials, suggesting that one implant composition won’t work for all applications, according to a report in Science Translational Medicine (2015, DOI: 10.1126/scitranslmed.aaa1616). Natalie Artzi of MIT and Harvard Medical School and coworkers assessed interactions between an adhesive biomaterial and healthy or diseased colon tissue.
