Applications of bioimpedance measurement techniques in tissue engineering

Problem Definition Tissue engineering is the science of generating tissues for replacing the malfunctioning tissues or organs in the body. Advances in biotechnology and material science has led to rapid developments in the field of tissue engineering ( 1 , 2 ). Polymers, hydrogels and decellularised animal tissues are different types of biomaterials that are used to generate tissue engineered constructs in combinations with cells ( 3 , 4 ). Due to the potential of generating differentiated cells, the tissue engineered constructs are commonly, first

Tissue engineering of bone and cartilage: a view through the patent literature

Abstract

Background: Tissue engineering takes on many approaches. It is mostly followed by those in the field through scientific literature. However, there is a virtually untapped resource in patent literature.

Objective: This review focuses on patents through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This source is used only because the author is most familiar with this resource. This article is not intended to be instructional regarding patents, patent law, or how to apply for patents, nor is it intended to be all inclusive of the patent literature. However, the reader might see the value of following the patent literature as a source of ideas, technologies, methodologies, and knowledge with respect to tissue engineering.

A new biocompatible delivery scaffold containing heparin and bone morphogenetic protein 2

Abstract

Silicon-substituted calcium phosphate (Si-CaP) was developed in our laboratory as a biomaterial for delivery in bone tissue engineering. It was fabricated as a 3D-construct of scaffolds using chitosan-trisodium polyphosphate (TPP) cross-linked networks. In this study, heparin was covalently bonded to the residual -NH2 groups of chitosan on the scaffold applying carbodiimide chemistry. Bonded heparin was not leached away from scaffold surfaces upon vigorous washing or extended storage. Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rhBMP-2) was bound to conjugated scaffolds by ionic interactions between the negatively charged SO4 2- clusters of heparin and positively charged amino acids of rhBMP-2. The resulting scaffolds were inspected for bone regenerative capacity by subcutaneous implanting in rats. Histological observation and mineralization assay were performed after 4 weeks of implantation. Results from both in vitro and in vivo experiments suggest the potential of the developed scaffolds for bone tissue engineering applications in the future.
