A Tissue Regeneration Approach to Bone and Cartilage Repair by Hala Zreiqat, Colin R. Dunstan, Vicki Rosen

By Hala Zreiqat, Colin R. Dunstan, Vicki Rosen

Reviewing exhaustively the present state-of-the-art of tissue engineering suggestions for regenerating bones and joints by using biomaterials, progress elements and stem cells, in addition to an research of the interactions among biomaterials, bone cells, development elements and extra stem cells and the way jointly skeletal tissues should be optimised, this ebook serves to spotlight the significance of biomaterials composition, floor topography, architectural and mechanical homes in supplying help for tissue regeneration.

Maximizing reader insights into the significance of the interaction of those attributes with bone cells (osteoblasts, osteocytes and osteoclasts) and cartilage cells (chondrocytes), this e-book additionally presents a close reference as to how key signalling pathways are activated. The contribution of progress components to force tissue regeneration and stem mobilephone recruitment is mentioned in addition to a evaluate the aptitude and demanding situations of grownup or embryonic mesenchymal stem cells to additional increase the formation of recent bone and cartilage tissues.

This booklet serves to illustrate the interconnectedness of biomaterials, bone/cartilage cells, progress components and stem cells in making a choice on the regenerative method and hence the scientific outcome.

Sample text

Hematopoietic cell fate decisions are dependent on the local microenvironment. Osteoblasts and stromal cells support hematopoietic stem cell quiescence as well as facilitate B-cell development. Recent studies demonstrated that the bone marrow of Sost−/− mice is specifically depleted of B cells because of elevated apoptosis at all B-cell developmental stages. In contrast, B-cell function in the spleen was normal. Further analysis confirmed that Sost is mainly expressed in osteocytes but not in hematopoietic lineage cells, suggesting that the B-cell defects in Sost−/− mice are noncell autonomous.
