This chronic shortage of donor organs is evident in other organ systems as well, and highlights the urgency to develop novel strategies to address this problem. The ability to fabricate artificial organs in the laboratory using tissue engineering strategies can alleviate some of the problems associated with chronic shortage of donor organs. 1 Donor Organ Shortage in the US—There is a chronic shortage of donor organs. The number of patients waitlisted for kidney and liver transplants is significantly higher than the number of donor organs available.

6 DESIGN PRINCIPLES FOR TISSUE ENGINEERING The process for the fabrication of artificial tissue is governed by design principles. In simplest of terms, tissue engineering equals tissue fabrication and, like any 13 DESIGN PRINCIPLES FOR TISSUE ENGINEERING Input variable 1 - cells Primary Culture Design considerations: 1. Number of cells 2. Ratio of different cell types 3. Percentage cell viability 4. Expression of cell surface markers Input variable 2 - biomaterial Design considerations: 1. Fiber composition 2.

The publication in which this definition surfaced is one of the seminal papers in the field and is discussed in detail in a later section. The definition provides several governing principles of the field, including the interdisciplinary nature of the research and reference to the end products to improve tissue function. Tissue Engineering—[definition] (National Institute of Health, 2001) (6) Reparative medicine, sometimes referred to as regenerative medicine or tissue engineering, is the regeneration and remodeling of tissue in vivo for the purpose of repairing, replacing, maintaining, or enhancing organ function, and the engineering and growing of functional tissue substitutes in vitro for implantation in vivo as a biological substitute for damaged or diseased tissues and organs.
