Biomimetic carboxymethylcellulose-based bilayer scaffolds for skin repair and regeneration
Tissue engineering has seen a major scientific breakthrough in the development of biomaterials that regenerate damaged tissues. Repair of damaged tissue requires the development of biological substitutes known as scaffolds that provide structural support and a favorable environment for tissues to grow and restore biological functions. A central question in the study of scaffolding biomaterials for tissue engineering is on technology to produce scaffolds mimicking the native tissues. This study explores carboxymethylcellulose-based scaffolding biomaterials for skin regeneration. The scaffold consists of layers with different compositions resembling the native human skin tissue.
