In bone tissue reconstruction, the use of engineered constructs created by mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that differentiate and proliferate into three-dimensional porous scaffolds is an appealing alternative to autologous and heterologous bone grafts. Scaffolds considered in this work are represented by polyurethane (PU) foams. Two PU foams (EC-1 and EC-2) were synthesized and characterized for morphology, mechanical properties and in vitro interaction with the osteoblast-like cell line MG63… CONTINUE READING
