Biopolymers for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine

Tissue engineering is the immense area of research in recent years because of its vast potential in the repair or replacement of impaired tissues and organs. The present research will focus on scaffolds as they are one of the three most important factors, including seed cells, growth hormones and scaffolds in tissue engineering. Among the polymers used in tissue engineering, polyhydroxy esters (such as PLA, PGA, and PLGA) have extensive attention for a variety of biomedical applications. Besides, PCL has been widely used as a tissue engineering scaffold. Scaffolds have been used for tissue engineering such as bone, cartilage, ligament, skin, vascular tissues, neural tissues, and skeletal muscle and as vehicle for the delivery of drugs, proteins, and DNA. The worldwide market for tissue engineering and regeneration products is expected to reach USD 11.5 billion by 2022.

BioPolymers have been widely used as biomaterials for the fabrication of medical device and tissue-engineering scaffolds. Polymeric scaffolds are drawing a great attention due to their unique properties such as high surface-to-volume ratio, high porosity with very small pore size, biodegradation, and mechanical property. They offer distinct advantages of biocompatibility, versatility of chemistry, and the biological properties which are significant in the application of tissue engineering and organ substitution. To restore function or regenerate tissue, a scaffold is necessary that will act as a temporary matrix for cell proliferation and extracellular matrix deposition, with subsequent ingrowth until the tissues are totally restored or regenerated.
