|Abstract:||Human amniotic membrane (AM) is reported to possess remarkable therapeutic potential for wound healing due to its inherent bioactive and biocompatible properties. However, poor handling characteristics have limited its clinical use on wounds to a great extent. Reinforcement of AM with a biodegradable polymer is therefore expected to provide adequate mechanical and handling nature. Poly-[Lactide-co-Glycolide-co-Caprolactone] terpolymer incorporated with silver nanoparticles and coated with fibrin is used in this study to reinforce the membrane which delivers bioactive molecules to the wound site without wound contraction. This combination scaffold exhibited desirable properties with excellent biocompatibility for potential use in wound healing applications.|
