Principles of tissue engineering by R. P Lanza( )

57 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 2,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Update of the rapid progress that has been achieved in tissue engineering, combining 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 by the worlds experts of what is currently known about each specific organ system. This edition includes greatly expanded focus on stem cells, including adult and embryonic stem cells and progenitor populations that may soon lead to new tissue engineering therapies for heart disease, diabetes, and a wide variety of other diseases that afflict humanity. This up-to-date coverage of stem cell biology and other emerging technologies is complemented by a series of new chapters on recent clinical experience in applying tissue engineering
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine by Joseph Vacanti( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ability to grow new tissue and organs is an important goal of regenerative medicine. This book discusses new research in which cells are grown on artificial scaffolds to build replacement tissue that could be used to treat a variety of conditions and produce more organs desperately needed for transplants"--
Synthetic biodegradable polymer scaffolds by Anthony Atala( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This body of work represents the first volume of a book series covering the field of tissue engineering. Tissue engineering, which refers to a category of therapeutic or diagnostic products and processes which are based upon a combination of living cells and biomaterials, was defined as a field only a few years ago (1988). Tissue engineering is an inherently interdisciplinary field, combining bioengineering, life sciences and clinical sciences. The definition of this area of work as the field of tissue engineering brought together scientists from multiple backgrounds who already were working toward the achievement of similar goals. Why a book series exclusively devoted to tissue engineering? The field of tissue engineering is heterogeneous. The cells involved in tissue engineering can be autologous, allogeneic or xenogeneic. The biomaterials utilized can be either naturally occurring, synthetic or a combination of both. The appli­ cation of the technology can be either for acute or permanent purposes. An attempt to cover the field of tissue engineering in a single volume, with the degree of detail necessary for individuals with different scientific back­ grounds and disciplines, would be a difficult task to accomplish, particularly when this field is just emerging and changing rapidly. Therefore, addressing different technologies within the field of tissue engineering, in a comprehen­ sive manner, is the main mission of this series of volumes. A stellar group of scientists has been brought together to form the editorial board of the series

The test : Building body parts. Blue genes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first program discusses the replacement of organs or tissues with lab created counterparts (kidneys, livers, hearts). In the second program, while people are regularly tested for breast cancer genes, what is done with the results? A woman had a radical mastectomy because she had the genes, even though she had shown no signs of cancer. The third program looks at depression, a complex compination of chemical, genetic, and environmental factors, and asks what if scientists could find the genetic origins of serotonin and cure depression?

Extensively Expanded Auricular Chondrocytes Form Neocartilage In Vivo( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Objective . Our goal was to engineer cartilage in vivo using auricular chondrocytes that underwent clinically relevant expansion and using methodologies that could be easily translated into health care practice. Design . Sheep and human chondrocytes were isolated from auricular cartilage biopsies and expanded in vitro . To reverse dedifferentiation, expanded cells were either mixed with cryopreserved P0 chondrocytes at the time of seeding onto porous collagen scaffolds or proliferated with basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF). After 2-week in vitro incubation, seeded scaffolds were implanted subcutaneously in nude mice for 6 weeks. The neocartilage quality was evaluated histologically; DNA and glycosaminoglycans were quantified. Cell proliferation rates and collagen gene expression profiles were assessed. Results . Clinically sufficient over 500-fold chondrocyte expansion was achieved at passage 3 (P3); cell dedifferentiation was confirmed by the simultaneous COL1A1/3A1 gene upregulation and COL2A1 downregulation. The chondrogenic phenotype of sheep but not human P3 cells was rescued by addition of cryopreserved P0 chondrocytes. With bFGF supplementation, chondrocytes achieved clinically sufficient expansion at P2; COL2A1 expression was not rescued but COL1A1/3A1genes were downregulated. Although bFGF failed to rescue COL2A1 expression during chondrocyte expansion in vitro, elastic neocartilage with obvious collagen II expression was observed on porous collagen scaffolds after implantation in mice for 6 weeks. Conclusions . Both animal and human auricular chondrocytes expanded with low-concentration bFGF supplementation formed high-quality elastic neocartilage on porous collagen scaffolds in vivo

Sweet genes Broken hearts ; Decoding cancer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pt.[1]. Sweet genes - There's a new sugar in town - 200 times sweeter than its predecessor. Thanks to genetic research, scientists have found a way to synthesize the berries of the West African Brazzein plant, and manipulate its protein. - pt.[2]. Broken hearts - Thousands of people die every year while waiting for a suitable heart transplant and as many more are headed that way. In lieu of a human transplant, scientists are working on three ways to mend a broken heart - mechanical heart, pig heart xenograft, and tissue engineering. - pt.[3]. Decoding cancer - It used to be that cancer was named for the place it developed, such as the liver, lung or breast. Today, cancers are being renamed for the genes that cause them - RAS or P51 - as researchers rethink the classifications and work toward treatments based on the specific genetic make up of individual cancers

Secrets of the sequence( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The first part of the program explores the creation of organs and tissues out of cells, at will and as needed, to save the lives of thousands of patients a year who were waiting in vain for organ transplants. The second segment shows how the coral off the coast of Australia "may help scientists in their search for a new fluorescent protein that could have a profound impact on microbiology". The last segment surveys beef consumption in the United States. With the help of genetic engineering, this popular meat and its by-products -- milk and cheese, will have enhanced taste and quality

Building body parts The test ; Blue genes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pt.[1]. Building body parts - Replacing organs or tissues with lab created counterparts; tissue-engineered kidneys, livers, and hearts. Science fiction? Not anymore - scientists are already successfully growing all kinds of organs and tissues in the lab. - pt.[2]. Test - People are regularly tested for breast cancer genes these days. But what is a patient supposed to do with the results? We'll meet a woman who had a radical mastectomy because she had the genes, although had shown no signs of cancer. - pt.[3]. Blue genes - It's ranked by the World Health Organization as one of the world's most disabling diseases. Depression is complex - an intricate combination of chemical, genetic and environmental factors. Therapy and drugs don't always work. What if scientists could find the genetic origins of serotonin and cure depression? At UCSF, a mouse "shrink" is trying to do just that
Tissues with issues Seeing red ; DNA on the farm( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pt.[1]. Tissues with issues - Waiting for an organ transplant is desperate and anguished for patients and their families. Thousands wait on the list and more than 5,800 died while waiting last year alone. But what if patients didn't have to wait for organs? What if researchers could create organs and tissues out of cells at will, as needed? Turns out "what ifs" might soon be in the past. Researchers have succeeded in their first attempts at tissue engineering. - pt.[2]. Seeing red - A lot of genetic science takes place in laboratories but more and more we're discovering that Mother Nature is the master geneticist herself. Off the coast of Australia, the coral may help scientists in their search for a new fluorescent protein that could have a profound impact on microbiology. - pt.[3]. DNA on the farm - For vegetarians around the world, beef is a four-letter word--something to stay away from. But for millions of others, the meat is on the plate nearly every day. Last year alone, the average American ate nearly 65 pounds of beef. Now scientists are using genetics to improve the taste and quality of the meat. But genetic research is influencing cattle products as well--milk and cheese are on the scientific workbench
