Given the importance of GAGs in stimulating normal tissue growth, the use of GAGs as components of a scaffold for tissue engineering appears to be a logical approach for scaffold development. Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are long, unbranched polysaccharides that do not elicit an immune response and have been used extensively for tissue engineering applications and can be copolymerized with collagen to increase the stiffness and toughness and decrease its degradation rate.
