The ExtraCellular Matrix: a focus on GlycosAminoGlycans and Hyaluronan

The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a three-dimensional macromolecular network composed of structural proteins (collagens, elastin), adhesion/signalling proteins (fibronectin, laminins), different proteoglycans, glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs are structurally complex, but their structure is simply made up of repeating disaccharide building blocks composed of alternating uronic acid and hexosamine units. GAGs Read more…

Poster – A groundbreaking 3D cell culture technology for HCS: BIOMIMESYS hydroscaffold

Ask for a high quality version of this poster : Most potential drug candidates (90%) fail within the clinical trials, mainly because of lack of efficacy. What if the pharmaceutical industry uses predictive human in vitro models in early drug discovery ? View and download on Slideshare (low quality)
