by the National Materials Testing Bed Inc., Department of Defense, we
are also studying the release of growth factors from nanofibers for skin
regeneration in the case of burn victims and diabetic ulcer patients. In
this work we are optimizing the various parameters associated with
electrospining for obtaining growth factor loaded nanofibers of
consistent diameters for optimal release of growth factors for faster
regeneration of the skin.
have also developed a microsphere based drug delivery system for
delivering radiosensitizers for the treatment of musculoskeletal tumors
and rheumatoid arthritis.
