Patients may need tissue and organ substitution or repair in the case of degenerative diseases and accidents such as traumas, age related disorders and end-stage organ failures. In a recent study, the condition of tissue engineering knowledge in various countries was assessed and classified according to different criteria. Iran was classified as a country with the existence of tissue engineering academic institutions and/or publications. In the Middle East, Iran has adopted similar approaches to this field (mainly academics) as well as Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. Bone tissue engineering is a relative technology developed in Iran used a composite of hydroxyapatite and gelatin to stimulate the mineral and organic components of the natural bones.
