Abstract:

Protein, gene, and small molecule therapies hold great potential for facilitating comprehensive tissue repair and regeneration. However, their clinical value will rely on effective delivery systems which maximize their therapeutic benefit. Significant advances have been made in recent years towards biomaterial delivery systems to satisfy this clinical need. Here we summarize the most outstanding advances in drug delivery technology for cutaneous wound healing.

Keywords: Biomaterial, coacervate, controlled release, drug delivery, hydrogel, microparticle, scaffold, wound healing.
