 About the Book 

The most important materials in development for use in tissue engineering, replacement, and regeneration are based on polymers and on composites reinforced with bioactive ceramics.- The first book to address the topic in an integrated manner,MoreThe most important materials in development for use in tissue engineering, replacement, and regeneration are based on polymers and on composites reinforced with bioactive ceramics.- The first book to address the topic in an integrated manner, Biodegradable Materials in Tissue Engineering presents an extensive description of biodegradable polymers used in medicine, and explores their design, development, and processing. The authors discuss the performance of biodegradable systems and the special requirements that should be taken into account when evaluating their biocompatibility. Included are several methodologies for tailoring cell adhesion and proliferation on the surface of biodegradable polymers.
