Principles of Tissue Engineering Book Review:

The opportunity that tissue engineering provides for medicine is extraordinary. In the United States alone, over half-a-trillion dollars are spent each year to care for patients who suffer from tissue loss or dysfunction. Although numerous books and reviews have been written on tissue engineering, none has been as comprehensive in its defining of the field. Principles of Tissue Engineering combines in one volume the prerequisites for a general understanding of tissue growth and development, the tools and theoretical information needed to design tissues and organs, as well as a presentation of applications of tissue engineering to diseases affecting specific organ systems. The first edition of the book, published in 1997, is the definite reference in the field. Since that time, however, the discipline has grown tremendously, and few experts would have been able to predict the explosion in our knowledge of gene expression, cell growth and differentiation, the variety of stem cells, new polymers and materials that are now available, or even the successful introduction of the first tissue-engineered products into the marketplace. There was a need for a new edition, and this need has been met with a product that defines and captures the sense of excitement, understanding and anticipation that has followed from the evolution of this fascinating and important field. Key Features * Provides vast, detailed analysis of research on all of the major systems of the human body, e.g., skin, muscle, cardiovascular, hematopoietic, and nerves * Essential to anyone working in the field * Educates and directs both the novice and advanced researcher * Provides vast, detailed analysis of research with all of the major systems of the human body, e.g. skin, muscle, cardiovascular, hematopoietic, and nerves * Has new chapters written by leaders in the latest areas of research, such as fetal tissue engineering and the universal cell * Considered the definitive reference in the field * List of contributors reads like a "who's who" of tissue engineering, and includes Robert Langer, Joseph Vacanti, Charles Vacanti, Robert Nerem, A.

Strategies in Regenerative Medicine Book Review:

The profound transformations occurred in our modern age have been made possible by the unique combination of new technologies. Among them, me- cine has completely changed our perception of life. Longevity has been signi- cantly extended and linked to new lifestyles. The negative impact that pathologies and ageing have always had on the quality of our life is now mitigated by the availability of treatments daily applied to many individuals worldwide. For many years, pharmacological and surgical treatments have been supported by the introduction of biomedical devices. Biomedical implants have played a key role in the development of these treatments and achieved the objective of replacing tissue and organ structures and functionalities. Gra- ally, the scientific and clinical communities have understood that replacement could be improved by materials able to interact with the tissues and to parti- pate in their metabolism and functions. This approach soon led to biomedical implants with improved clinical performances, but also to a new aspiration; rather than replacing damaged tissues and organs scientists and clinicians nowadays aim at their partial or complete regeneration. As a consequence of this ambition, the disciplines of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have recently emerged. It is the dawn of a fascinating era where scientists from various disciplines, clinicians, and industry will need to intensify their col- borative efforts to provide our society with new and affordable solutions.

Wound Healing Book Review:

Outstanding scientific advances over the last decades unceasingly reveal real complexity of wound-healing process, astonishing in its staged progression, as life is unfolding itself. This natural course of tissue repair seems to bear thousands of overlapping molecular and macroscopic processes that nowadays only start to unfold to our knowledge. The present volume collecting recent scientific references proposes to readers a two-folded audacious goal. First, an updated design of intimate cellular mechanisms is entailed in tissue regeneration that emanates from the first section of the book. Next, a multidisciplinary therapeutic perspective that focuses on macroscopic healing throughout the second part of this work adds clinically integrated observation. Practical diagnostic and treatment information is appended in each chapter that may equally help experienced clinicians or dedicated students and researchers in broadening essential breaking points of their work. It is the wish of all multidisciplinary experts who gather prominent author's panel of this volume to incorporate latest medical reports and compel limits of current understanding for better tissue regeneration, limb salvage, and improved quality of life of our patients.

Advances in Wound Healing Materials Book Review:

Wound healing and wound care technologies are an ever expanding field with the advancement of materials science, biomedicine and tissue engineering. In the year 2011 the global wound care market generated US$ 6,500 million with an annual growth rate of 7.5%. The global advanced wound care products market share in 2023 is predicted to be approximately US$ 16,300 million.This book discusses the evolution of wound care devices and protocol over the years and different technologies being used in the present day wound care treatment. New strategies involving engineered tissues and drug delivery to mimic the natural wound healing milieu are discussed. The use of cytokine growth factors enhances chronic wound healing particularly for burn wound healing. Prevention of scarring, keloid formation or contractures and a cosmetically acceptable healing is a challenge even now.Skin tissue engineering was the first successfully clinically applied product in regenerative medicine. Bioengineered skin seeded with fibroblast and keratinocyte cells could form a permanent solution that do not require skin grafting or as a temporary cover for burns prior to grafting. Cell attachment, proliferation and tissue formation in a three-dimensional porous scaffold can be engineered for specific application. These cell based skin substitutes had significant wound healing and scar reducing effect on patients.Gene-activated dermal equivalent is another emerging approach for the healing of full thickness incision wounds with good remodelling of the skin. The book also describes similar latest developments on wound healing science and research.The target audiences are wound care professionals, researchers working on wound healing technology and skin tissue engineering; as well as graduate students and industries that need to understand the aspects of wound healing and technological orientation towards successful commercialisation.
