Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering: An Overview of Modern Advances and Discoveries related to Stem Cells that contribute to Replacement of Native Tissue
Johnson H and Gallicchio VS
The number of patients that need engineered tissue replacements is on the rise. Tissue engineering is a subset of the field of regenerative medicine that patients can and should use over modern symptomatic treatments. Tissueengineered constructs ensure patients receive the best care they possibly can by giving patients personalized care, intended specifically for them. Engineers use the patient’s own stem cells to repair or replace irreparably diseased/damaged tissues. Although it is a comparatively new field of medicine, tissue engineering shows incredible promise largely thanks to the incorporation of stem cells.
