Immunomodulatory biomaterials in regenerative medicine

Written by Future Science OA

A new Editorial discusses the potential of biomaterials to solve issues with the immune system in regenerative medicine. With the continued dearth of organs available for transplant, the development of tissue engineering toward organ replacement remains a high research priority. However, issues inherent with tissue engineering such as rejection by the host immune system and clinical applicability of engineered tissue remain a challenge. A new Editorial from Nihal Engin Vrana (PROTiP Medical, Strasbourg, France), published in Future Science OA, discusses the potential use of biomaterials in this context. In particular, Vrana discusses the potential for biomaterials to solve issues with...
