Biomaterials & Bioengineering

Biomaterials are being used for the healthcare applications from ancient times. But subsequent evolution has made them more versatile and has increased their utility. Biomaterials have revolutionized the areas like bioengineering and tissue engineering for the development of novel strategies to combat life threatening diseases. Together with biomaterials, stem cell technology is also being used to improve the existing healthcare facilities. These concepts and technologies are being used for the treatment of different diseases like cardiac failure, fractures, deep skin injuries, etc.

Tissue Engineering is addressed to create functional tissues which include cells, scaffolds, and bioactive molecules. It is the development of biological substitutes that maintains, improves or restores tissue functions resulting in sidestepping the problems associated with tissue damage. In the present, it is treated with transplants, mechanical devices or surgical reconstructions, these three medical therapies have saved and improved countless patients’ lives with few associated problems. For example, transplantation in organs shows limitations such as transplant rejections and lack of donor to cover all the worldwide demand. Mechanical devices are not capable of accomplishing all the functions related to the tissue and also the prevention of progressive deterioration in patients.  Thus it has informed that Tissue Engineering arises from the need to provide more definitive solutions to tissue repairs.
