A stable adhesion to the cartilage is a crucial requisite for hydrogels used for cartilage regeneration.
This work, recently published on Macromolecular Bioscience by researchers from The BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, and Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli. highlights the importance of the adhesion of implants for an effective therapy. Three different adhesive primers have been evaluated with gellan gum-based hydrogels, proving their efficacy also for future clinical translation.
The paper is supported by the EU-funded H2020 ADMAIORA research project under the coordination of the Sant’Anna School Biorobotics Institute.
