State-of-the-Art Technology for Artificial Organ Implant

Tissue engineering, which is now being categorized as a form of regenerative medicine, can be defined as biomedical engineering to reconstruct, repair, and improve biological tissues. Research efforts in tissue engineering have been ongoing and it is emerging as one of the key areas of medical research. Furthermore, there are vast developments in tissue engineering, which involve leveraging of technologies from biomaterials, molecular medicine, biochemistry, nanotechnology, genetic and biomedical engineering for regeneration and cell expansion targets to restructure and/or repair human organs.

Tissue engineering is often referred to as regenerative medicine and reparative medicine. It is an interdisciplinary field requiring the combined efforts of cell biologists, engineers, material scientists, geneticists, clinicians, mathematicians etc., towards the development of biological substitutes that restore, maintain, or improve tissue function. Currently it has emerged as a rapidly diversifying field with the potential to address the worldwide organ shortage issue and comprises of tissue regeneration and organ replacement. Cells placed on or within the tissue constructs is the most common methodology in tissue engineering. Successful cell seeding as it is known depends on the fast attachment of engineered cell to scaffolds, high cell survival and uniform cell distribution over READ MORE >
