Electrospinning for Tissue Regeneration

Electrospinning for Tissue Regeneration Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Electrospinning is a simple and highly versatile method for generating ultrathin fibres with diameters ranging from a few micrometres to tens of nanometres. Although most commonly associated with textile manufacturing, recent research has proved that the electrospinning technology can be used to create organ components and repair damaged tissues. "Electrospinning for tissue regeneration" provides a comprehensive overview of this innovative approach to tissue repair and regeneration and examines how it is being employed within the biomaterials sector.

The book opens with an introduction to the fundamentals of electrospinning. Chapters go on to discuss polymer chemistry, the electrospinning process, conditions, control and regulatory issues. Part two focuses specifically on electrospinning for tissue regeneration and investigates its uses in bone, cartilage, muscle, tendon, nerve, heart valve, bladder, tracheal, dental and skin tissue regeneration before concluding with a chapter on wound dressings. Part three explores electrospinning for in vitro applications. Chapters discuss cell culture systems for kidney, pancreatic and stem cell research.

Book News Annotation:

Bosworth and Downes (materials science, U. of Manchester, UK) compile 18 articles that discuss the use of electrospinning technology in the biomaterials sector to create organ components and repair damaged tissues. Researchers in chemistry, biology, engineering, veterinary science, biotechnology, and materials science in Europe, the US, and Asia explain the fundamentals of electrospinning and its process, conditions, and control; polymer chemistry; regulatory issues; uses in bone, cartilage, muscle, tendon, nerve, heart valve, bladder, tracheal, dental, and skin tissue regeneration and wound dressings; in vitro applications; and cell culture systems for kidney, pancreatic, and stem cell research.

Synopsis:

Electrospinning is most commonly associated with textile manufacturing. However recent research and development has proved that the technology can be used to create organ components and repair damaged tissues. This novel approach to tissue repair and regeneration is being widely employed within the biomaterials sector, as it produces nanofibers which create the correct physical environment to promote cell migration and new tissue formation. The first part of the book provides an introduction to the field with information on chemistry, process control and regulator issues. A second group of chapters discuss electrospinning for organ regeneration such as skin and bone tissue regeneration. A final group of chapters analyze electrospinning for other tissue regeneration such as stem cell and wound healing applications.
