Fibers, membranes, or vessels containing living cells made by a technique called cell electrospinning are safe when used in mice, researchers find (Small 2013, DOI: 10.1002/smll.201300804). The work is a step toward use of the advanced cell-containing materials in regenerative medicine, for example, to patch damaged or aging tissues and organs. Suwan N. Jayasinghe of University College London and coworkers reported . . .
