  • collagen
  • Fibrinogen/thrombin-coated collagen patch (TachoSil┬«) is known to have the effect of strengthening tissue anastomosis and promoting suturing to prevent leakage. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Using FGF stimulate fibroblast activity is a more effective means of sealing tissue than current tissue sealants due to the robust nature of collagen which makes up connective tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fibrin gels can be enriched by addition of other extracellular matrix (ECM) components such as fibronectin, vitronectin, laminin and collagen. (wikipedia.org)
  • If this is allowed to happen, tissue repair cells such as macrophages, fibroblasts and blood vessel cells penetrate into the fibrinous adhesion and lay down collagen and other matrix substances to form a permanent fibrous adhesion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Contact guidance refers to a phenomenon for which the orientation of cells and stress fibers is influenced by geometrical patterns such as nano/microgrooves on substrates, or collagen fibers in gels and soft tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • On the other hand, too large values of groove widths can also decrease the effects of contact guidance Cells can orient in response to contact guidance also when located inside three-dimensional structures, such as collagen gels, scaffolds, and soft tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • Similarly, it has been demonstrated that the collagen fibers present in collagen gels and soft tissues can influence cell alignment, providing the most important stimulus in terms of cell orientation Recent research has highlighted the importance of cellular alignment for the mechanical properties and functionality of the prostheses developed using the principles of tissue engineering.

  • degradation
  • Regeneration of the tissue and the degradation of the scaffold should be balanced in terms of rate, surface area and interaction so that ideal templating can be achieved. (wikipedia.org)
  • PURPOSE
  • The main purpose of these cells is to produce a lubricating fluid that is released between layers, providing a slippery, non-adhesive, and protective surface to facilitate intracoelomic movement. (wikipedia.org)
