Breathing Life into Lab-Grown Organs: Advances in Oxygen-Releasing Biomaterials

Polymer InternationalResearch into tissue engineering heralds an age of off-the-shelf biomedical materials which can repair diseased or damaged organs while overcoming the continued lack of donations. New research published in Polymer International explores the advances in oxygen-releasing biopolymers, which are vital to ensuring active cells which are encased in artificial tissue are kept alive. The research, led by Ali Khademhossein of Harvard Medical School, reviews the major technologies which incorporate oxygen-releasing molecules into engineered biomaterials.
