  • 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.

    The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a site of intense morbidity for millions of people, especially young, pre-menopausal women. Central to TMJ afflictions are the cartilaginous tissues of the TMJ, especially those of the disc and condylar cartilage, which play crucial roles in normal function of this unusual joint. Damage or disease to these tissues significantly impacts a patient's quality of life by making common activities such as talking and eating difficult and painful. Unfortunately, these tissues have limited ability to heal, necessitating the development of treatments for repair or replacement. The burgeoning field of tissue engineering holds promise that replacement tissues can be constructed in the laboratory to recapitulate the functional requirements of native tissues. This book outlines the biomechanical, biochemical, and anatomical characteristics of the disc and condylar cartilage, and also provides a historical perspective of past and current TMJ treatments and previ us tissue engineering efforts. This book was written to serve as a reference for researchers seeking to learn about the TMJ, for undergraduate and graduate level courses, and as a compendium of TMJ tissue engineering design criteria. Table of Contents: The Temporomandibular Joint / Fibrocartilage of the TMJ Disc / Cartilage of the Mandibular Condyle / Tissue Engineering of the Disc / Tissue Engineering of the Mandibular Condyle / Current Perspectives

  • Vascularization of Artificial Tissue

    We introduce the concept of vascularization as it applies to the tissue and organ fabrication process. We describe molecular mechanisms of several vascularization process, including vasculogenesis, angiogenesis, and arteriogenesis and discuss the application of these process to the tissue fabrication process.

  • Microfluidic Formation of Cell-Laden Hydrogel Modules for Tissue Engineering

    This chapter introduces the reproducible fabrication methods of cell-laden hydrogel modules with a controllable design and the characteristics of the modules. It provides an overview of handling techniques of the modules in microfluidic devices. The chapter talks about applications of the modules for transplantation and bottom-up tissue engineering. Combined with cell assay microfluidic systems and cell-laden hydrogel modules, microtissues with extracellular matrices (ECMs) are useful for analyses of cell functions and cell-cell interactions because microtissues can easily be handled, arrayed, and retrieved in microfluidic systems. Furthermore, the cell-laden hydrogel modules can be used as building units for reconstructing 3D cell structures. Therefore, the cell-laden hydrogel modules produced by microfluidic devices have a great potential to create miniaturized tissues for human implantation and for treatment of diseases.

  • Liver Tissue Engineering

    Dental caries, periodontitis, tooth loss, and bone resorption are considered prevalent health problems that have direct affect on the quality of life. While, advances in stem cell biology and biotechnology have sparked hope for devastating maladies, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, etc., it also provides a strategy of regenerative therapy for dental tissues. From the prospective of tissue engineering, it is of utmost importance to understand and emulate the complex cell interactions that make up a tissue or organ. Unlike other tissues in the body, dental tissues are unique in their development, function, and even in their maintenance throughout life. The harmonized stimulations of biology and mechanical regulators to promote cellular activities have matured our understanding of the value of regenerative therapy of dental tissue versus the reparative treatment. In this book, we review the current knowledge available to regenerate alveolar bone, periodontal structure, and pulp dentin complex. The book provides researchers with detailed information about development and functional characteristics of the dental unit with detailed protocols covering a comprehensive range of various approaches to engineer dental tissues: to use isolated cells or cell substitutes as cellular replacement, to use acellular biomaterials capable of inducing tissue regeneration, and/or to use a combination of cells, biomaterial and growth factors. We are well aware, with the concept changes in the field toward in-vitro biomimetics of in-vivo tissue development. The theoretical frame work integrating these concepts of developmental biology and developmental engineering is yet to be emphasized and implemented. Until this happens, we consider this book of regenerative dentistry as a call for scientists to achieve, researchers to innovate, practitioners to apply, and students to learn the art and science of regenerative therapy in dentistry. Table of Contents: Introduction to Regenerativ Dentistry / Tissue Engineering Alveolar Bone / Tissue Engineering of the Periodontal Tissues / Dynamics for Pulp-Dentin Tissue Engineering in Operative Dentistry

  • Bioreactors for Tissue Engineering

    We introduce the concept of bioreactors as applied to the tissue and organ fabrication process. We begin by providing a framework for bioreactors, provide a definition and describe a classification for bioreactors. We provide specific examples of bioreactors for cell culture, biomaterial synthesis, scaffold cellularization, mechanical stretch, electrical stimulation and perfusion.

  • Micro- and Nanospheres for Tissue Engineering

    The emergence of regenerative medicine has resulted in a novel interdisciplinary field that focuses on repair, replacement, and regeneration of diseased or damaged tissues or organs. As one of the most important strategies in regenerative medicine, the field of tissue engineering (which typically combines biodegradable scaffolds, (stem) cells, and bioactive signals such as growth factors) has created new possibilities to produce implantable tissues ex vivo. This chapter focuses on the most recent advances in research on micro- and nanospheres aiming at improvement of the functionality and clinical efficacy of traditional scaffolds for soft and hard tissue engineering. Depending on their origin, polymeric micro- and nanospheres can be classified as either natural or synthetic polymers, both of which have their specific pros and cons.
