The importance of glycans (chains of carbohydrates) in human body is relatively well known. They have a number of essential roles not only in physiology, but also in origin of various diseases. The majority of proteins and

Increasing the cells adhesion to silk meshes: first step towards cell-based therapy for hernia repair

Recent studies in the field of tissue engineering have demonstrated that combining cells with meshes prior to implantation successfully enhanced hernia repair. The idea is to create a biologic coating surrounding the prostheses with autologous cells, before
