Triumphing over Damaged Tissues

A new biomaterial has been developed that is capable of regenerating tissues such as cartilage, spinal cord and bones, without the risk of open surgery. The engineer, Dr. Ali Fathi PhD, from the University of Sydney, Australia, has created TRIMPH (Temperature Responsive Modifiable Peptide Hydrogel). When it is injected into the body, it forms an elastic gel around the damaged tissue. The gel then works as a scaffold to promote the regeneration of the tissue, before gradually breaking down to a non-toxic component in the body. With this invention, many surgeons will be free to carry out more pressing surgeries. What’s more, this new technology will allow the body to heal quickly without scars.
