Introduction

This volume reviews the published knowledge about bioactive composites, protein scaffolds and hydrogels. Chapters also detail the production parameters and clarify the evaluation protocol for analysis or testing and scaffolding biomaterials. The volume concludes with a summary of applications of porous scaffold in medicine. Each chapter links basic scientific and engineering concepts to practical applications for the benefit of the reader.

The text offers a wealth of information that will be of use to all students, bioengineers, materials scientists, chemists, physicians and surgeons concerned with the properties, performance, and the application of tissue engineering scaffolds in clinical settings.

Preface

Tissue engineering aims to regenerate damaged tissues by using a 3-dimensional bioscaffold, cells, biomolecules and growth factors. The success of this strategy depends on the biomaterials selection, design and development techniques of bioscaffolds and evaluation methods. Although, this field is new, upward advances are being made in order to be translated to patients. Therefore, it was found that an appropriate book which discusses the novel 3D bioscaffold designs and experimental procedures could be helpful for students and researchers. This book reviews the published resources and discusses the bioscaffolding materials, used techniques and presents the production parameters to clarify the evaluation protocols for analysis or testing. This book covers the chapters by leading bioengineers, biologists, dentists and clinicians. Therefore, the text has basic information that will be of use to bioengineers, clinicians and surgeons who deal with the tissue engineering strategies. This is a reference book for undergraduate and graduate courses and clinical laboratories. Finally, the editor thanks for the support of all the contributors and the publisher who made the publication of this book possible.
