Cell sheet engineering for scaffold-free cartilage regeneration

Abstract:

Osteoarthritis, the most prevalent joint disease in the United Kingdom, is a progressive condition that results in end-stage full-thickness cartilage loss and has important social and economic impacts on society. Since cartilage lacks regenerative capabilities, it is essential to develop approaches to initiate and enhance cartilage regeneration. In this context, tissue engineering is emerging as an attractive approach for the regeneration of cartilage tissue damaged due to...
