Abstract : During this period, significant preliminary administrative approvals were obtained including IACUC and ACURO approvals. Given the complexity of these procedures this required repeated refinements. Four swine surgeries were performed, modifying the procedure after the first two and now with a successful and repeatable model. Ongoing studies to evaluate nerve and vessel regeneration continue to be tested. There has been ongoing research and development on the alginate gels and growth factors through collaboration with the Wyss Institute.
