Osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent degenerative joint disease that places a significant burden on the socioeconomic efficacy of communities around the world. Tissue engineering repair of articular cartilage in synovial joints represents a potential OA treatment strategy superior to current surgical techniques. In particular, osteochondral tissue engineering, which promotes the simultaneous regeneration of articular cartilage and underlining subchondral bone, may be a clinically relevant… CONTINUE READING
