6.5 Biomaterials in cartilage tissue engineering

B. Reid, H. Jacobs, J. Liu, J. Elisseeff

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Articular cartilage repair remains a challenging clinical issue because of the poor intrinsic ability of this tissue for repair. The inefficiency of current repair strategies has prompted research into tissue engineering approaches combining cells, scaffold materials, and growth factors. The objective of this chapter is to discuss the emerging trends in cartilage tissue engineering with an emphasis on research moving forward toward clinical applications.
