The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disc is maintained by a population of fibrochondrocytes. Although articular chondrocytes exhibit zonal differences and de-differentiate in monolayer culture, such variations are unknown for fibrochondrocytic populations. This study's objective was to define...
Umbilical cords are usually discarded after delivery, even though they contain a set of functional vessels. We investigated whether the human umbilical vein (HUV) is suitable as a storable scaffold for the tissue engineering of small-caliber vessel grafts. Isolated HUVs were cryopreserved by...
Cell–cell communication between multiple-cell populations is believed to be important for the activation of many cellular functions. Previously, we showed that, in the rat hepatoma cell line Fao, grown in a layered co-culture system with a human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) sheet,...
A bilayered bioengineered living skin construct (LSC) consisting of viable human neonatal keratinocytes over a collagenous dermis seeded with dermal fibroblasts has been used extensively in difficult—to heal human wounds. Its biological properties include production of several mediators,...
During the past decade, there has been much interest in the use of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) in bone tissue engineering. HMSCs can be obtained relatively easily and expanded rapidly in culture, but for clinical purposes large numbers are often needed and the cost should be kept to a...
Blood vessels of the vertebrate circulatory system typically exhibit tissue-specific patterning. However, the cues that guide the development of these patterns remain unclear. We investigated the effect of cyclic uniaxial strain on vascular endothelial cell dynamics and sprout formation in vitro...
The induction of bone formation by the soluble osteogenic molecular signals of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) superfamily is a critical issue to periodontologists, molecular biologists, and tissue engineers alike, because preclinical studies in primates and clinical trials have...
Cultured precision-cut liver tissue slices are useful for studying the metabolism and toxicity of xenobiotics in liver. They may also be used to investigate the behavior of and interaction between different cell types in an intact histo-architecture. Because cultured liver tissues undergo a loss...
Collagen presents an attractive biomaterial for tissue engineering because of its excellent biocompatibility and negligible immunogenicity. However, some intrinsic features related to the mechanical stability and thrombogenicity limit its applications in orthopedic and vascular tissue...
This study evaluated the regenerative effects of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for the degenerated intervertebral disc (IVD) in vivo . After induction of IVD degeneration in rabbits, we prepared PRP by centrifuging blood obtained from these rabbits. These PRP were injected into the nucleus pulposus...
