In our method, the concentration of collagenase I used was lower than that used for adipose stem cell isolation (normally 0.075%).[10] Besides, the digestion was done for a 15 min duration, which is only half of that used for adipose stem cells' isolation.
Caption: Figure 2: On (a), the results of the collagen-genipin hydrogel results are depicted showing a gradual decline in the % weight remaining of the hydrogel over the time due to the exposure to the 0.1% collagenase solution.

Collagenase was used to digest the intestinal tissue because collagenase hydrolyses proline polypeptides, which has no effect on the cell membrane or the growth potential attached cells.
Two trials predate the IMPRESS trials (Gelbard, James, Riach, & Dorey, 1993; Gelbard et al., 2012) that also support the use of collagenase with men who have Peyronie's disease.
[41] have pointed out that the level of MMP-8 was lower in peri-implant mucositis than in progressive peri-implantitis, and the high level of this collagenase did not correlate with the severity of peri-implantitis.
For a standard chondrocyte isolation protocol employing 750 U/ml collagenase type II, physical agitation was found to significantly increase cell yield (Figure 1(d)), with an almost fivefold increase after 1 h, compared with a twofold increase for 12 h exposure (p < 0.001).
Indeed, enzymes are known to be involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases, for instance hyaluronidase, collagenase and elastase enzymes involves in the pathogenesis of wound, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, inflammation, bone destruction and fibrosis (20,23-26).
