The emerging field of tissue engineering focuses on the creation of living tissues and organs for use in tissue repair and transplantation. Human cells are seeded onto biocompatible scaffolds and grown under physiologic conditions to produce all-human biointeractive implants. Tissue-engineered skin implants have shown efficacy in a variety of wound… CONTINUE READING
