The clinical picture and course of lichen planus (LP) on the mucous membrane of the oral cavity have significant differences from its manifestations on the skin. In particular, greater resistance to treatment, which is due to the structural features of the mucous membrane, as well as the specificity of biological and physicochemical processes in the oral cavity. There are 6 clinical forms of LP of the red border of the lips and oral mucosa - typical, hyperkeratotic, exudative-hyperemic, erosive - ulcerative, bullous and atypical. Read More

J Biomed Mater Res B Appl Biomater 2021 May 8. Epub 2021 May 8.

Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, Marquette University and Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

Recently, several types of native tissues have been enzymatically digested to prepare hydrogels that have natural-mimic extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins, architecture, and biologic activities. However, the residual detergents and salts remaining in the hydrogel may cause some undesirable effects on compatibility, functionality, and bioactivity of the material. In this study, we enzymatically digested the demineralized and decellularized bone matrix (DDBM) and adopted two common methods that included dialysis against distilled water and acetone precipitation for sample desalting.
