Abstract:
In recent years, the field of tissue engineering has been developed aiming to meet the
tremendous need for transplantation of organs and tissues. In a general sense, tissue
engineering seeks to fabricate living replacement parts for the body. Strategies currently
used to engineer tissues depend on employing a material to support cell growth and tissue
regeneration. These scaffolds are mostly based on extracellular matrix materials, mainly
collagen and its composites. In this chapter, the preparation, properties and application of
all kinds of collagen composites including our own work are reviewed. Collagen forms
composites with a variety of materials such as naturally derived polymers, synthetic
polymers, fibers and microparticles for tissue engineering. The purpose of fabrication of
collagen composites mainly lies in that the resulting composite materials would provide
better biocompatibility, cell-scaffold interaction or enhancement of mechanical properties
of individual polymers. Overall, collagen composite scaffolds have played and will still
play an important role in the field of tissue engineering.
