Boron-loaded hydrogel halves the recovery time for injured muscles

A newly developed hydrogel could greatly accelerate the recovery times for damaged muscles, by flooding the injury site with boron

Over the past few years we’ve seen some interesting examples of how injectable hydrogels can boost the recovery of damaged muscles and tendons, whether by flooding them with stem cells or acting as supporting scaffolds. Scientists in Spain have now developed a hydrogel that releases boron to dramatically accelerate the formation of new muscle fibers.
