TY - CHAP A1 - Tomonori Matsuno ED1 - Daniel Eberli Y1 - 2010-03-01 PY - 2010 T1 - Design of Injectable Bone Tissue Engineering Scaffold Consists of ß-Tricalcium Phosphate Beads and Alginate N2 - The Tissue Engineering approach has major advantages over traditional organ transplantation and circumvents the problem of organ shortage. Tissues that closely match the patient’s needs can be reconstructed from readily available biopsies and subsequently be implanted with minimal or no immunogenicity. This eventually conquers several limitations encountered in tissue transplantation approaches. This book serves as a good starting point for anyone interested in the application of Tissue Engineering. It offers a colorful mix of topics, which explain the obstacles and possible solutions for TE applications.
