Abstract

Tissue engineering is an emerging field that includes the development of structures that replace, repair, and maintain tissue functions. Tissue engineering is an attractive and cost-effective strategy when compared to conventional or surgical therapies. The technique involves in vitro seeding and attachment of human cells onto a scaffold. These cells then proliferate, migrate, and differentiate, as well as secrete extracellular matrix components in order to form and repair tissues. The type of scaffold and its components are therefore crucial for controlling the behavior of the cells and for the success of the therapy. Among the many scaffold materials that have been developed, the collagen-based scaffolds offer many advantageous features, as well as some limitations. The aim of this chapter is to describe the use of collagen-based scaffolds in tissue engineering and repair.
