Peripheral nerve injury is a thorny problem for many years because it is difficult to find out appropriate drugs or materials that can maximize healing effects and minimize damages to human body. Among various methods, the use of biomaterial scaffolds on injured nerves has been favoured due to the biocompatibility, accessibility, and effectiveness. Marine oriented materials have attracted huge attention with their unique pro-regenerative potential. This article reviews the application of marine biological materials in the repair of peripheral nerve injury.
