The need for replacement tissues or organs requires a tissue supply that cannot be satisfied by the donor supply. The tissue engineering and regeneration field is focused on the development of biological tissue and organ substitutes and may provide functional tissues to restore, maintain, or improve tissue formation. This field is already providing new therapeutic options to bypass the limitations of organ?tissue transplantation and will likely increase in medical importance in the future. This… CONTINUE READING
