Core Tip

Core tip: Spinal cord injury is a thorny disease to doctors. Tissue engineering including three core contents-seed cells, scaffolds and growth factors - is a promising method to cure this disease. Selecting suitable factors and maximizing the repairing effect is very important. This article is a hypothesis to choose the suitable factor which hopes to build up a promising method to treat spinal cord injury.
