  • Cells and Biomaterials for Intervertebral Disc Regeneration

    Disorders related to the intervertebral disc (IVD) are common causes of morbidity and of severe life quality deterioration. IVD degeneration, although in many cases asymptomatic, is often the origin of painful neck and back diseases. In Western societies IVD related pain and disability account for enormous health care costs as a result of work absenteeism and thus lost production, disability benefits, medical and insurance expenses. Although only a small percentage of patients with disc disorders finally will undergo surgery, spinal surgery has been one of the fastest growing disciplines in the musculoskeletal field in recent years. Nevertheless, current treatment options are still a matter of controversial discussion. In particular, they hardly can restore normal spine biomechanics and prevent degeneration of adjacent tissues. While degeneration affects all areas of the IVD, the most constant and noticeable changes occur in the gel-like central part, the nucleus pulposus (NP). Recent emphasis has therefore been put in biological ways to regenerate the NP; however, there are a number of obstacles to overcome, considering the exceptional biological and biomechanical environment of this tissue. Different biological approaches such as molecular, gene, and cell based therapies have been investigated and have shown promising results in both in vitro and in vivo studies. Nonetheless, considerable hurdles still exist in their application for IVD regeneration in human patients. The choice of the cells and the choice of the cell carrier suitable for implantation pose major challenges for research and development activities. This lecture recapitulates the basics of IVD structure, function, and degeneration mechanisms. The first part reviews the recent progress in the field of disc and stem cell based regenerative approaches. In the second part, most appropriate biomaterials that have been evaluated as cell or molecule carrier to cope with degenerative disc disease are outlin d. The potential and limitations of cell- and biomaterial-based treatment strategies and perspectives for future clinical applications are discussed.

  • Integrating Top-Down and Bottom-Up Scaffolding Tissue Engineering Approach for Bone Regeneration

    Tissue engineering (TE) as an interdisciplinary field of research aims at restoring, maintaining, or improving tissue function through applying the principles of biology, medicine, and engineering science. Cells, scaffolds, and growth-stimulating bioactive factors are generally referred to as the three key components of engineered tissues in TE. A common strategy in TE is combining cells, biodegradable scaffolds, and bioactive factors to replicate natural processes of tissue regeneration and development. The interactions among these components are imperative to achieve biologically functional engineered tissue. This chapter reviews the bone TE strategies involved in preparation of scaffolds and briefly discusses the drawbacks and advantages of these strategies. The major challenge of integration of bottom-up techniques with more traditional top-down approaches is to create more complex tissues than are currently achievable using either approach alone by optimizing the advantages of each technique.

  • Bioreactors for Tissue Engineering

  • Articular Cartilage Tissue Engineering

    Cartilage injuries in children and adolescents are increasingly observed, with roughly 20% of knee injuries in adolescents requiring surgery. In the US alone, costs of osteoarthritis (OA) are in excess of $65 billion per year (both medical costs and lost wages). Comorbidities are common with OA and are also costly to manage. Articular cartilage's low friction and high capacity to bear load makes it critical in the movement of one bone against another, and its lack of a sustained natural healing response has necessitated a plethora of therapies. Tissue engineering is an emerging technology at the threshold of translation to clinical use. Replacement cartilage can be constructed in the laboratory to recapitulate the functional requirements of native tissues. This book outlines the biomechanical and biochemical characteristics of articular cartilage in both normal and pathological states, through development and aging. It also provides a historical perspective of past and current cartil ge treatments and previous tissue engineering efforts. Methods and standards for evaluating the function of engineered tissues are discussed, and current cartilage products are presented with an analysis on the United States Food and Drug Administration regulatory pathways that products must follow to market. This book was written to serve as a reference for researchers seeking to learn about articular cartilage, for undergraduate and graduate level courses, and as a compendium of articular cartilage tissue engineering design criteria. Table of Contents: Hyaline Articular Cartilage / Cartilage Aging and Pathology / In Vitro / Bioreactors / Future Directions

  • Micro- and Nanoengineering Approaches to Developing Gradient Biomaterials Suitable for Interface Tissue Engineering

    This chapter discusses various techniques such as micro- and nanotechnologies, used in the fabrication of gradient biomaterials or scaffolds suitable for engineering tissue interfaces and how the gradient features of the biomaterials influence cellular behaviors such as adhesion, migration, differentiation, and heterotypic interactions during tissue organization.

Finally, potential challenges and future directions of the emerging field of interface tissue engineering (ITE) are discussed.

  • Characterization of the Adhesive Interactions Between Cells and Biomaterials

    The interactions between cells and their environment are mediated by adhesion receptors located on the cell surface. This chapter focuses on the adhesion receptors responsible for the interactions that occur within native tissue, current biomaterial fabrication methods that attempt to mimic these interactions for tissue engineering applications, and measurement techniques that investigate cell-substrate and cell-cell adhesion strength.

  • Micro- and Nanotechnologies to Engineer Bone Regeneration

    In this chapter, selected published articles pertaining to micro- and nanotechnologies for bone tissue engineering are reviewed with a focus on development of scaffolds. Nanoparticles and nanofibers have shown to improve the mechanical properties of biodegradable polymeric implants. Non-union bone fractures are a major health care concern in the United States. One of the most widely used strategies in bone tissue engineering is the use of scaffolds for temporary structural support. Scaffolds are porous biomaterials and play a central role in tissue engineering approaches by guiding cell proliferation and assisting the exchange of nutrients and waste. Scaffolds made with micro- and nanoparticles and micro- and nanofibers show much promise as they impart the ability to create scaffolds with appropriate mechanical properties and microenvironment. The chapter discusses micro/nanomaterials of hydroxyapatite, a variety of synthetic polymers, and silk, and their potential for use as bone tissue engineering scaffolds.

  • Engineering the Knee Meniscus

    The knee meniscus was once thought to be a vestigial tissue, but is now known to be instrumental in imparting stability, shock absorption, load transmission, and stress distribution within the knee joint. Unfortunately, most damage to the meniscus cannot be effectively healed by the body. Meniscus tissue engineering offers a possible solution to this problem by striving to create replacement tissue that may be implanted into a defect site. With a strong focus on structure-function relationships, this book details the essential anatomical, biochemical, and mechanical aspects of this versatile tissue and reviews current meniscus tissue engineering strategies and repair techniques. We have written this text such that undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers will find it useful as a first foray into tissue engineering, a cohesive study of the meniscus, or a reference for meniscus engineering specifications. Table of Contents: Structure-Function Relationships of the Knee eniscus / Pathophysiology and the Need for Tissue Engineering / Tissue Engineering of the Knee Meniscus / Current Therapies and Future Directions
