VEGF-containing, self-assembling peptide nanofiber scaffolds for
self-assembling peptide nanofiber scaffolds could help promote tissue repair
following myocardial infarction (MI). In rat and porcine models of MI,
intramyocardial injection of the VEGF-containing nanofiber scaffold increased
cardiac function, angiogenesis and arteriogenesis compared with injection of
scaffold or VEGF alone. In the rat model, intramyocardial injection of the
VEGF-containing nanofiber scaffold decreased systemic adverse effects
compared with injection of VEGF itself. Next steps include studies to
evaluate the scaffold's long-term effects and determine its therapeutic
window in the post-MI setting.
