Engineering of tissues and organs

S.J. Lee and A. Atala,    Wake Forest University School of Medicine, USA

Abstract:

Regenerative medicine and tissue engineering strategies may offer new hope for patients with serious tissue injuries or end-stage organ failure. Scientists are now applying the principles of cell transplantation, material science, and bioengineering to construct biological substitutes that can restore and maintain normal function in diseased and injured tissues. Moreover, the stem cell field is advancing, and new discoveries will lead to new therapeutic strategies. Although stem cells are still in the research phase, some therapies that make use of autologous adult cells have already entered the clinic. This chapter highlights ...
