Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to methods and compositions for the production of scaffolds to be used for a variety of purposes, including tissue engineering. More specifically, the present invention relates to the use of fused crystals, such as fused salt crystals to form a framework. The methods for producing the scaffold of this invention improve the porosity, interconnectivity and ease of manufacture as compared to prior art methods.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés et des compositions de production de charpentes qui sont destinées à divers usages, notamment au génie tissulaire. Plus précisément, l'invention concerne l'utilisation de cristaux fondus, tels que des cristaux de sel fondus, pour former un cadre. Les procédés de production de ces charpentes, comparés aux procédés actuels, améliorent la porosité, l'interconnectivité et la facilité de fabrication.
