Inflammation after traumatic injury or surgical intervention is both a protective tissue response leading to regeneration and a potential cause of wound complications. One potentially successful strategy to harness to pro-regenerative roles of host inflammation is the localized delivery of bioactive materials to induce immune suppressive cellular responses by cells responding to injury. In this study, we designed a fully synthetic poly (ethylene) glycol (PEG)-based hydrogel to release the specialized pro-resolving lipid mediator aspirin-triggered resolvin-D1 (AT-RvD1) and recombinant human interleukin 10 (IL-10). We utilized a unique side-by-side internally controlled implant design wherein bioactive hydrogels… [more]
