Abstract

Destruction of bone tissue due to disease and inefficient bone healing after traumatic injury may be addressed by tissue engineering techniques. Growth factor, cytokine protein, and gene therapies will be developed, which, in conjunction with suitable carriers, will regenerate missing bone or help in cases of defective healing.
