Abstract:

With the advent of new treatment of tissue repairs, tissue engineering is one of the key technologies. There are three important factors scaffold, mechanical stimulation and biochemical factor. In this study, we have developed porous materials of hydroxyapatite, polysaccharides and collagens nanocomposites as a novel scaffold in which the nanostructures were controlled through self-organization processes. The porous materials of the nanocomposites have the pore diameter of 200-300mm and a good biocompatibility to human chondrocytes.
