Induced organ regeneration is de novo synthesis of a physiological, or nearly physiological, organ at the same anatomical site as the organ that is being replaced. Regeneration of skin, peripheral nerves and the conjunctiva, described in this chapter, have been accomplished using biologically active scaffolds (regeneration templates) seeded with epithelial cells; devices for regeneration of the first two organs are in clinical use. There is substantial empirical evidence that templates induce… CONTINUE READING
