  author={Amos Matsiko and Tanya J. Levingstone and Fergal J. O’Brien},
Articular cartilage is a unique tissue owing to its ability to withstand repetitive compressive stress throughout an individual's lifetime. However, its major limitation is the inability to heal even the most minor injuries. There still remains an inherent lack of strategies that stimulate hyaline-like articular cartilage growth with appropriate functional properties. Recent scientific advances in tissue engineering have made significant steps towards development of constructs for articular… CONTINUE READING
