Plasma protein may hold promise for wound scaffolds

Researchers have employed a plasma protein found in blood to develop a new method for making wound-healing tissue scaffolds. The team’s new scaffold can be attached or detached from a surface, for either in vitro laboratory tissue studies or direct applications in the body. Their discovery, reported today in the journal Biofabrication, could be extremely useful for future use in wound healing and tissue engineering.
