Description

Extracellular Matrix-Derived Implants in Clinical Medicine comprehensively covers the emergence of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine over the past few decades, along with discussions of continuous funding and research.

The book provides a state-of-the-art review of this increasingly important technology and how it is translating from bench to bedside. Part One of the book looks at the historical use of human and animal tissues, focusing on the main application areas, including cardiovascular, hard and soft tissue engineering, and neurological, while Part Two examines the challenges in harvesting, processing, and manufacturing of extracellular matrices, with a final section reviewing the international regulatory environment and economics of tissue-based products.

Key Features

  • Addresses issues of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine from a biomaterials industry perspective
  • Looks at the historical use of human and animal tissues, focusing on the main application areas, including cardiovascular, hard and soft tissue engineering, and neurological
  • Examines the challenges in harvesting, processing, and manufacturing of extracellular matrices
  • Reviews the international regulatory environment and economics of tissue-based products

Readership

Scientists and engineers working in biomedical engineering, biomaterials and tissue engineering, and regulatory professionals and clinicians
