Articular cartilage tissue engineering procedures require the transplantation of chondrocytes that have been expanded in vitro. The expansion is carried out for a considerable time and can lead to a modulation of cell phenotype. However, microcarrier cultures have been shown to allow cell expansion while maintaining the phenotype. Here, we have used the biodegradable polyester poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) in the form of microspheres and irregular shaped microparticles with a diameter… Expand
