Polysaccharide-based Biodegradable Material for Tissue Engineering

Polysaccharide-based Biodegradable Material for Tissue Engineering


Polysaccharide-based biomaterials have proven to have promising applications in tissue engineering fields such as bone/chondral regeneration, cardiac regeneration, nerve regeneration, and skin regeneration. CD BioGlyco is dedicated to helping clients design and manufacture more novel and sophisticated polysaccharide-based biodegradable scaffolds or devices with customized architectures produced by various manufacturing methods for biomedical applications.

Advantages of Polysaccharide-based Biodegradable Material in Tissue Engineering

Biomaterials in tissue engineering are a special class of substances used for implantation into the human body to replace or repair human tissues and organs. As an important natural extracellular matrix component, polysaccharides have important prospects for application in tissue engineering scaffolds. Materials composed of natural polysaccharides, glycopolymers, and supramolecular glycopeptides offer the possibility to mimic extracellular matrix functions. On the one hand, scaffold materials can influence cellular behavior by mechanotransduction; on the other hand, the biochemically induced functions of different polysaccharides can induce direct or indirect interactions between the materials and cells.

The use of polysaccharide-based biomaterials in tissue engineering has grown rapidly in recent decades. Many studies have shown that polysaccharides are promising biomaterials for cartilage, bone, heart, and skin repair and other areas of tissue engineering. The most common form of these natural polymers is biological scaffolds. Most of the polysaccharides used in tissue engineering applications function in the form of hydrogels. Among them, nanoscale polysaccharide materials have attracted increasing attention, such as cellulose nanocrystals (CNC), starch nanocrystals (SNC), and electrospun composite nanofibers.
