Abstract: Tendon plays an important role in regulating body locomotion and providing additional stability to the body. However, tendon is susceptible to injuries and the healing process could be devastating along with the several issues, namely adhesion formations, slow healing and failure at fixation sites, which have deferred the success of proper tendon healing via tendon tissue engineering. This dissertation thus aims to create a sustained dual-drug therapy to address these issues. For adhesion formation, naproxen sodium (NPS) has been shown to be able to avoid this symptom through inhibiting inflammation process. [Continues.]
