Collagen-based nanofibers could rebuild human tissue

05/27/2010 | London Free Press (Ontario), The

Researchers are moving closer to using nanotechnology to regenerate tissue. Collagen-based nanofibers hold promise for regenerating heart valves, tendons, ligaments and other human tissues, though their real-world application is a decade or two away. The biodegradable, biocompatible fibers can carry proteins that promote the growth of cells and healing.
