Book Description :

Millions of patients suffer from end-stage organ failure or tissue loss annually, and the only solution might be organ and/or tissue transplantation. To avoid poor biocompatibility–related problems and donor organ shortage, however, around 20 years ago a new, hybridized method combining cells and biomaterials was introduced as an alternative to whole-organ and tissue transplantation for diseased, failing, or malfunctioning organs—regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. This handbook focuses on all aspects of intelligent scaffolds, from basic science to industry to clinical applications. Its 10 parts, illustrated throughout with excellent figures, cover stem cell engineering research, drug delivery systems, nanomaterials and nanodevices, and novel and natural biomaterials. The book can be used by advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students of stem cell and tissue engineering and researchers in macromolecular science, ceramics, metals for biomaterials, nanotechnology, chemistry, biology, and medicine, especially those interested in tissue engineering, stem cell engineering, and regenerative medicine.

Book Description :

In order to grow replacement tissues, 3D scaffolds are widely used as a template for tissue engineering and regeneration. These scaffolds, which are typically ‘seeded’ with cells, support the growth of new tissues. However, in order to achieve successful tissue growth, the scaffold must meet specific requirements and are often ‘functionalized’ to accentuate particular properties. Functional 3D tissue engineering scaffolds: materials, technologies, and applications, is a comprehensive review of functional 3D scaffolds, providing information on the fundamentals, technologies, and applications. Part 1 focuses on the fundamentals of 3D tissue scaffolds, examining information on materials, properties, and trends.

Book Description :

Tissue engineering aims to develop biological substitutes that restore, maintain, or improve damaged tissue and organ functionality. To date, numerous stem cells and biomaterials have been explored for a variety of tissue and organ regeneration. The challenge for existing stem cell–based techniques is that current therapies lack controlled environments that are crucial for regulating stem cell engraftment and differentiation in vivo, because stem cells are rather sensitive to even minute changes in their environment. Micro- and nanotechnology hold great potential to fabricate biomimetic spatiotemporally controlled scaffolds as well as control stem cell behavior and fate by micro- and nanoscale cues. This book presents the latest micro- and nanotechnologies used to manipulate stem cell behaviors, which is a critical area for regenerative medicine. Moreover, it covers and details cutting-edge research in nano- and microfabrication techniques and biomaterials for the regeneration of various tissues and organs, such as bone, cartilage, craniofacial, osteochondral, muscle, bladder, cardiac, and vascular tissues.

Book Description :

Immobilization of individual cells and collections of cells in well-defined, reproducible, nano-to-microscale structures that allow structural and functional manipulation and interrogation is important for developing new classes of biotic/abiotic materials, for establishing the relationship between genotype and phenotype, and for elucidating responses to disease, injury/stress, or therapy - primary goals of biomedical research. Although there has been considerable recent progress in investigating the response of cells to chemical or topological patterns defined lithographically on 2D surfaces, it is time to advance from two-dimensional adhesion on dishes/fluidic devices to three-dimensional architectures that better represent the nanoporous, 3-D extracellular matrix (ECM). 3D immobilization in nanostructured hosts enables cells to be surrounded by other cells, maintains fluidic connectivity/accessibility, and allows development of 3-D molecular or chemical gradients that provide an instructive background to guide cellular behavior. Although 3-D cell immobilization in polymers, hydrogels, and inorganic gels has been practiced for decades, these approaches do not provide for bio/nano interfaces with 3D spatial control of topology and composition important to both the maintenance of natural cellular behavior patterns and the development of new non-native behaviors and functions. This LDRD project exploited our discovery of the ability of living cells to organize extended nanostructures and nano-objects in a manner that creates a unique, highly biocompatible bio/nano interface, mimicking the ECM, and maintaining cell viability, accessibility, and functionality (Baca et al. Science, 2006). Briefly, we found that, using short chain phospholipids to direct the formation of thin film silica mesophases during evaporation-induced self-assembly (EISA, Lu, Brinker et al. Nature 1997), the introduction of cells (yeast, Gram negative and positive bacteria, and several mammalian cells) alters profoundly the inorganic self-assembly pathway. Cells actively organize around themselves an ordered, multilayered lipid-membrane that interfaces coherently with a lipid-templated silica nanostructure. This bio/nano interface is unique in that it withstands drying (even evacuation) without cracking or the development of tensile stresses - yet it maintains accessibility to molecules, proteins/antibodies, plasmids, etc - introduced into the 3D silica host. Additionally cell viability is preserved for weeks to months in the absence of buffer or a fluidic architecture, making these constructs useful as standalone cell-based sensors. (On this basis, our sensors were launched to the space station for viability studies after exposure to vacuum and UV). The bio/nano interfaces we describe do not form 'passively' - rather they are a consequence of the cell's ability to sense and actively respond to external stimuli. During EISA, solvent evaporation concentrates the extracellular environment in osmolytes. In response to this hyperosmotic stress, the cells release water, creating a gradient in pH (and presumably other molecular components), which is maintained within the adjoining nanostructured host and serves to localize lipids, proteins, plasmids, lipidized nanocrystals, and a variety of other components at the cellular surface. This active organization of the bio/nano interface, which we refer to as cell directed assembly (CDA) can be accomplished during ink-jet printing or selective wetting - processes allowing patterning of cellular arrays - what's more we find that cells printed onto preformed, fluid lipid/silica mesophases integrate themselves within the silica nanostructure, creating a 3D environment essentially indistinguishable from that in CDA. We refer to this latterprocess as cell-directed integration (CDI). The synthetic constructs we have developed have allowed us to explore several fundamental questions concerning the mechanisms by which cells actively control nanostructure formation and function and conversely the mechanisms by which nanostructured interfaces, matrices, and patterns can control cellular behavior.
