Paper Abstract

Our ongoing studies out to one year postoperatively of healing in sheep menisci and condylar articular cartilage prompt the study of photochemical bonding of other connective tissues with our 1,8-naphthalimide dyes. Here we report our ex-vivo experiments in photochemical bonding of the dermis of rabbit dorsal skin with 1,8-naphthalimide dyes, in which effects of varying the externally applied pressure during the welding and of the addition of an albumin-collagen protein filler are studied.
