Silk fibroin

Silk Fibroin

Silk fibroin is a naturally derived protein polymer isolated from domestic silkworm cocoons that possesses unique properties that meet requirements for tissue engineering and drug delivery applications. The unique secondary and crystal structures of silk biomaterials confer them desirable biodegradability, biocompatibility, biosafety, stabilization and tunable release of the incorporated drugs, and all-aqueous, ambient processing options.Silk suture threads have been safely utilized in clinics for many years, and medical devices made from solubilized silk fibroin have also been approved by the US FDA recently. Silk fibroin as an emerging biodegradable material with distinguished features is attracting more and more attention from academia institutes as well as medical device and pharmaceutical industries.
