Introduction: In order to enhance vascularisation, the combination of gene therapy and scaffolds for tissue regeneration offers the opportunity to temporarily induce angiogenesis in vivo. In this study we developed a new approach to activate biomaterials by combining their use with non viral gene vectors[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
