Articular cartilage lesion often results from trauma or diseases and is a major contributor to the onset of debilitating diseases such as osteoarthritis. Current repair strategies for chondral and osteochondral defects even though can improve the quality of the life of patients for short duration has significant disadvantages. Tissue engineering is emerging as a potential alternative strategy to support the regeneration of articular cartilage. The chapter presents a brief discussion of the struc...

In this study, we have reported the incorporation of a multi-modal contrast agent based on hydroxyapatite nanocrystals, within a poly(caprolactone)(PCL) nanofibrous scaffold by electrospinning. The multifunctional hydroxyapatite nanoparticles (MF-nHAp) showed simultaneous contrast enhancement for three major molecular imaging techniques. In this article, the magnetic resonance (MR) contrast enhancement ability of the MF-nHAp was exploited for the purpose of potentially monitoring as well as for ...

Abstract An injectable composite gel was developed from alginic and hyaluronic acid. The enzymatically cross-linked injectable gels were prepared via the oxidative coupling of tyramine modified sodium algiante and sodium hyaluronate in the presence of horse radish peroxidase (HRP) and hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ). The composite gels were prepared by mixing equal parts of the two tyraminated polymer solutions in 10 U HRP and treating with 1.0% H 2 O 2 . The properties of the alginate gels were si...

Poly(caprolactone) (PCL) has been frequently considered for bone tissue engineering because of its excellent biocompatibility. A drawback, however, of PCL is its inadequate mechanical strength for bone tissue engineering and its inadequate bioactivity to promote bone tissue regeneration from mesenchymal stem cells. To correct this deficiency, this work investigates the addition of nanoparticles of silica (nSiO2) to the scaffold to take advantage of the known bioactivity of silica as an osteogeni...

Abstract Chitosan is a novel biocompatible, biodegradable polymer for potential use in tissue engineering. In this work, chitosan–gelatin/nanophase hydroxyapatite composite scaffolds were prepared by blending chitosan and gelatin with nanophase hydroxyapatite (nHA). The prepared nHA was characterized using TEM, XRD and FT-IR. The prepared composite scaffolds were characterized using SEM, FT-IR and XRD studies. The composite scaffolds were highly porous with a pore size of 150–300 μm. In addition...
