Tissue Engineering: From Basic Sciences to Clinical Perspectives

Description

New drugs and innovative devices have improved the quality of life for patients with several diseases but they have not necessarily decreased morbidity or mortality in some conditions. Organ replacement is eminently successful but the limitation of available organs made it sparingly used. Tissue engineering is proposed as a solution by replacing tissue or organ function with constructs that contain specific populations of living cells. Many researchers have investigated the possibility of several biomaterials, both synthetic and natural substances, for the uses in tissue engineering field. Several criteria need to be considered before these materials can be used in clinical study. Due to the advance technology in tissue engineering of various organs, the editors of this journal are pleased to launch this new special issue for investigators to contribute review and original papers describing recent findings in this field.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Medical device and artificial organ development
  • Cell transplantation and technologies that will maintain, improve, or restore the functions of diseased organs
  • New, possible materials used for tissue engineering
  • Latest technologies in tissue engineering
  • Biological component of tissue engineering
  • Studies using new methodological paradigms that challenge advance thinking for tissue engineering in clinical research
  • Clinical applications and studies
  • Value assessments (including cost-benefit studies of using tissue engineering for clinical practice)
