Tissue engineering of the intervertebral disc with cultured annulus fibrosus cells using atelocollagen honeycombshaped scaffold with a membrane seal (ACHMS scaffold)

Abstract

The objective of the study was to investigate the regeneration of intervertebral discs after laser discectomy using tissue engineering procedures. Annulus fibrosus (AF) cells from the intervertebral discs of Japanese white rabbits were cultured in an atelocollagen honeycomb-shaped scaffold with a membrane seal (ACHMS scaffold), to produce a high-density… (More)
