Collagen-based tubular constructs for tissue engineering applications

C.E. Ghezzi, B. Marelli and S.N. Nazhat,    McGill University, Canada

Abstract:

Vascular and respiratory systems have high priority in clinical research due to their cardinal role in human physiology. Significant clinical demand has raised the need to produce tissue engineered constructs, to repair or substitute functional parts, and to develop suitable models to study and cure severe pathologies of vascular and respiratory systems. This chapter provides an overview of the current approaches for vascular and airway tissue replacement, regeneration, and modelling. Furthermore, protein-based materials, such as type I collagen, are presented as the construction materials for ...
