In the field of reconstructive surgery, autologous cartilage grafting is commonly performed to reconstruct skeletal defects. Because of the limited supply of fresh autologous cartilage many investigators concentrate on in vitro production of cartilage tissue. Several growth factors regulate the metabolism and activation of cartilage cells. In order to enhance the culture conditions for cartilage cells, the aim of our investigations was to characterize the influence of transforming growth factor… CONTINUE READING
