Investigation of multiphasic 3D-bioplotted scaffolds for sitespecific chondrogenic and osteogenic differentiation of human adipose-derived stem cells for osteochondral tissue engineering applications

Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part B: Applied Biomaterials 2020

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that limits mobility of the affected joint due to the degradation of articular cartilage and subchondral bone. The limited regenerative capacity of cartilage presents significant challenges when attempting to repair or reverse the effects of cartilage degradation. Tissue engineered medical products are a promising alternative to treat osteochondral degeneration due to their potential to integrate into the patient’s existing tissue. The goal of this study was to create a scaffold that would induce site‐specific osteogenic and chondrogenic differentiation of human adipose‐derived stem cells (hASC) to generate a full osteochondral implant. Scaffolds were fabricated using…
