Abstract

Recent advances in nanotechnology and molecular self-assembly may provide novel solutions to current cell transplantation deficiencies. Heparin-binding peptide amphiphiles (HBPAs) self-assemble from aqueous media into nanofibers that bind growth factors through interactions with the bioactive polymer heparin. In this report, we demonstrate that delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor and fibroblast growth factor-2 from HBPA scaffolds significantly increases blood vessel density in the mouse omentum over control scaffolds without growth factors (P
